CRED The Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED) has been active for over 40 years in the fields of international disaster and conflict health studies, with activities linking relief, rehabilitation and development. The Centre promotes research, training and technical expertise on humanitarian emergencies, particularly in public health and epidemiology.

CRED's research scope includes two main axes: natural disasters and crisis situations caused by civil strife, conflict or others. CRED studies broader aspects of humanitarian crises and emergencies, such as socio-economic, gender and environmental issues, with a strong focus on the special needs of vulnerable groups such as women and children. By providing a wealth of data on health issues arising from disasters and conflict, CRED seeks to improve needs-based preparedness and responses to humanitarian emergencies.

EUGEO EUGEO is the Association of Geographical Societies in Europe. The aim of EUGEO is to represent its members at the European level and to coordinate and initiate joint activities of the members to advance research and education on the Geography of Europe and to promote the scientific discipline, the school subject and the professional practice of Geography in Europe. EUGEO also functions as a network and a forum for strengthening the position and operations of its member organisations, in particular for activities with a European dimension. Website
EIONET The European Environment Information and Observation Network (Eionet) is a partnership network of the European Environment Agency (EEA) and its 38 member and cooperating countries. EEA and Eionet gather and develop data, knowledge, and advise to policy makers about Europe's environment.

Since 1st January 2022, there are 13 Eionet groups, working in the following areas:

  • Biodiversity and ecosystems - integration of knowledge for policies
  • Biodiversity and ecosystems - cumulative pressures and solutions
  • Circular economy and resource use
  • Climate change impacts, vulnerability and adaptation
  • Climate change mitigation and energy systems
  • Communications
  • Data, technologies and digitalisation
  • Food systems
  • Foresight
  • Human health and the environment
  • Land systems
  • Mobility systems
  • State of the environment
EPA Network Since establishing the Network of the Heads of European Environmental Protection Agencies in 2003, it has grown to include the Heads of Environmental Protection Agencies and similar organisations from 37 European countries, including the European Environment Agency (EEA).

Members are knowledge producers, regulators, researchers and policy advisers. Gathering know-how and best practices from implementation of environmental policies and state of the environment reporting is highly beneficial for the day-to-day work of our environment agencies

IFRC Climate Centre The Red Cross Red Crescent Climate Centre focuses primarily on providing guidance and tools to National Societies and their partners, and fostering the exchange of experience, training and technical back-up for Red Cross Red Crescent volunteers, delegates and managers specializing in disaster risk management and health.

The Climate Centre continually strives to advance and share knowledge about the ways climate change impacts the most vulnerable people around the world. To do so, our experts work closely with research institutions; learning from them while sharing our knowledge and experience to shape joint research agendas and promote evidence-led policy and practice. Our team includes scientists from different disciplines, many of whom have published research on the social and natural sciences. And, in an exchange of staff as well as ideas, some members of our humanitarian team are based at research institutions.

Quora The question-and-answer network Quora conceptually is somewhere between a social network like Facebook and a knowledge forum. Users can ask and answer questions via Quora. The questions are assigned to certain categories - the users in turn register themselves as connoisseurs of certain categories. Users can rate the questions and answers posted on Quora positively or negatively. Well-rated and thus helpful Q&A threads are consequently highlighted and appear more frequently in the feeds. The comment function allows users to participate or discuss the post topics. In addition, Quora also offers an edit function that allows users to edit and thus improve third-party questions and answers. Website
