You are warmly invited to join us at the Fifth annual seminar of the DRMKC that will take place virtually on the 17-18 of November.

Within the newly established Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network, the DRMKC is proposed to become the nucleus of its Science Pillar. The pillar will be a collaborative space where the scientific community connects to the operational stakeholders while ensuring that decision-makers benefit from already-existing scientific knowledge and that the scientists benefit from decision-makers’ experience to further develop innovative and tailored technologies.

The annual seminar will be an opportunity to launch a new phase of dialogue between civil protection authorities and the scientific community and to start building the network together.

Objective of the seminar

The scope would be to establish the core community of scientists who will help constructing the knowledge base for supporting DRM activities and actions.

The seminar will hence address specific activities that can make significant impact in terms of role and mission of the Science Pillar:

  • Making available and better quality risk and loss data, improving risk assessment methodology, better understanding of risk driver and harmonization of risk metrics (Session 1);
  • Advising on strategies and policies to counter disastrous situations through the development of resilience scenarios that factor in multiple hazards and cascading effects for improved early warning systems (Sessions 2 and 3);
  • Provide scientific advice in implementing the Union Disaster Resilience Goals, measuring and monitoring them (Session 4).

Program & on-line Registration

Please check the draft agenda for more information on the scope of the different sessions.

More information on the program, the webex link to participate to event will be made available soon on our website.

Call for contributions

We invite you to submit proposals for topics to be presented and discussed in each of the four main sessions. In particular, presentations on lessons learned, experiences from Member States and examples on how research outputs are translated into policies related to the topics of the seminar are especially sought.

For the proposals, please submit a tentative title, name of speaker, and contributors and a short abstract (max. 200 words) of the contribution by the 15th of October using the following online form:

RA 2 - General

Catania – Validation Workshops


The goal of the research activity is to collect and evaluate the results of the three workshops of phase one. This will be carried out through a questionnaire (Validation tool 1.1) that is organised in two parts (10 questions in total).

The first section evaluates the relevance/applicability of DIP (dimensions, indicators and  proxies) in the context of Catania.

The second section collects feedback on the role of scenarios as a tool for testing the validity of the DIP system and collects information on the clarity and understanding of the data gathering process. You are asked to receive and complete the questionnaire submitted by the Local Training Lead, returning it back by email before and no later than Monday 07/02/2022.

The RESILOC research team will use the answers you provide to further refine the development of the resilience tool that aims to improve the resilience of local communities.

RA1 - Overview Catania

Catania - Workshops on Dimensions, Indicators and Proxies


The workshop will be a mixed meeting, with both in-person and remote participants, and led by the Local Training Lead. The Local Training Lead will introduce the participants to the theoretical framework developed.

This activity will be performed via a PowerPoint presentation that aims to explain the scientific/research framework of RESILOC, introducing the DIP database and the logic behind it. During the presentation, the Local Training Lead will explore participants views, in particular on the approach of using dimensions, indicators and proxies to capture the resilience of a community; this will be done through dedicated Q&A sessions during specific moments of the workshop.

The purpose is to make the representatives of the Municipality and the LRT members able to evaluate the applicability of the framework in terms of relevance, feasibility, data availability, among others for the community of Catania.
