Last 30th of November 2021, CORE was presented at the two-days PSCE Conference in Brussels – 2021 under the topic “Climate Emergencies: how to improve preparedness?”.
The scale, frequency and unpredictability of crises seem to be increasing and the resulting consequences are becoming more and more dramatic. All actors involved in such crises, from public authorities to solution providers, are concerned and constantly seek to better prevent and minimise their impact. The conference, that gathered around 80 participants, was attended by a variety of EU officials and experts (DG CNECT, DG ECHO, DG HOME, ESA) who provided valuable policy insights relevant to the themes and topics addressed.
Few days before the Knowledge Network Day on 7th of December and its launch, it was the occasion to discover the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network (UCPNK) that will aim at boosting the EU civil protection and disaster management system to enable it to tackle existing and emerging challenges.
PSCE just released its Conference Report: you will find, among other things, the transcript of the presentations of UCPNK and CORE, respectively given by Felix Bloch, Head of Unit for “Knowledge Network and Evidence-Based Policy” at the European Commission (DG ECHO) and Marie-Christine Bonnamour, PSCE Secretary-General.
