We bundle Austria’s expertise in the field of security- and disaster research
We network researchers, emergency response organizations, public authorities and companies to connect practical know-how and scientific expertise. Furthermore, we coordinate five working groups in the sector of prevention and management of disastrous events, in which more than 170 experts of well-known research institutions, universities and companies are represented. Therewith, we bundle the Austrian professional competence in the field of disaster research. Finally, we endeavor to raise interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary exchange through international cooperation. The organization of international conferences significantly contributes to this goal.
