CORE is part of the CMINE Cluster (https://www.cmine.eu). In the cluster, synergies activities are ongoing with the following projects:
The overall goal of RESILOC is to identify new strategies for improving on the processes of preparedness of local communities against any kind of hazards, either planned or unplanned. The project aims at bringing together the validity and experience of local communities and the strategies and commitment of national and supra-national actors to achieve a tangible impact on the way resilience is understood and increased in local communities. Therefore a holistic framework of studies, methods and software instruments will be developed, that combines the physical with the less tangible aspects associated with human behavior that applies at the community scale.
In actual times, climate change and evolving global assets are changing the nature of hazards and their predictability. Societies and all individuals are demanded to be able to rapidly respond to growing natural and man-made disasters.
ENGAGE is a EU-funded project, started in July 2020, whose mission is to provide novel knowledge, impactful solutions and emergency response guidelines for exploiting Europe’s societal resilience.
Solutions will aim at bridging the gap between formal and informal approaches to risk and emergency management, increasing the ability of communities to adapt before, during and after disaster.
Increasingly complex and interconnected risks globally highlight the need to enhance individual and collective disaster resilience. Awareness of risks and levels of preparedness across Europe remain low with gaps between the risk perceptions and actions of citizens, and between the risk perceptions of citizens and Civil Protection Authorities (CPAs). The RiskPACC project seeks to further understand and close this Risk Perception Action Gap (RPAG). Through its dedicated co-creation approach and its seven case studies, RiskPACC will facilitate interaction between citizens and CPAs to jointly identify their needs and develop potential procedural and technical solutions to build enhanced disaster resilience. Importantly, RiskPACC will provide an understanding of disaster resilience from the perspective of citizens and CPAs, identifying resilience buildinginitiatives and good practices led by both citizens (bottom-up) and CPAs (top-down). The “Risk Pack” of solutions will include a framework and methodology to understand and close the RPAG, a repository of international best practice and tooled solutions based on new forms of digital and community-centered data and associated training guidance.
RiskPACC consortium comprised of CPAs, NGOs, associated organisations, researchers and technical experts will facilitate knowledge sharing and peer-learning to close the RPAG and build disaster resilience.
LINKS “Strengthening links between technologies and society for European disaster resilience” is a comprehensive study on disaster governance in Europe. The overall aim of the LINKS project is to strengthen links between technologies and society for improved European disaster resilience, by producing sustainable advanced learning on the use of social media and crowdsourcing (SMCS) in disasters.
In order to reach the core objectives of LINKS, the partners follow an integrative research approach, starting from an assessment of the three complementary knowledge domains: Disaster Risk Perception and Vulnerability, Disaster Management Processes, Disaster Community Technologies (DCT).
The project will develop the LINKS Framework which consists of scientific methods, practical tools, and guidelines addressing researchers, practitioners, and policy makers to understand, measure and govern SMCS for disasters. It will be developed and evaluated through five practitioner-driven European cases in Denmark, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands, representing different disaster scenarios. Furthermore, LINKS sets out to create the LINKS Community, which brings together a wide variety of stakeholders, both online (LINKS Community Center) and in person (LINKS Community Workshops).
Funded by the European Union's H2020 research and innovation programme, BuildERS works on increasing the societal resilience and social capital of European communities and citizens. It will do this by genuinely co-designing processes and tools with citizens, first-responder organisations and technology tools developers. The project will incorporate an inclusive and interactive research and analysis process, where the results are not derived ‘top-down’ but through a ‘bottom-top’ dynamic interaction.
