International networks of researchers on crisis management
The following tables present relevant networks of researchers which could become part of the LINKS Community
|CERIS||COMMUNITY OF EUROPEAN RESEARCH AND INNOVATION FOR SECURITY
The objectives of CERIS are: to analyse identified capability needs and gaps in the corresponding areas, o identify solutions available to address the gaps, to translate capability gaps and potential solutions into research needs, to identify funding opportunities and synergies between different funding instruments, to identify standardisation needs, to integrate the views of citizens
|CMINE||CMINE is the hub for crisis management professionals in the EU and beyond. It aims to foster innovation and research uptake in crisis management through cross-sector, multi-stakeholder dialogues around capability gaps and potential solutions.||Website|
|EU-JRC||The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.||Website|
|IDRIM||IDRiM Society is a non-profit organization named the International Society for Integrated Disaster Risk Management
The main objective of the IDRiM Society is to promote knowledge sharing, interdisciplinary research and development on integrated disaster risk management contributing to the implementation of success models for efficient and equitable disaster risk management options. Furthermore, the IDRiM Society aims at promoting knowledge transfer and dissemination of information and concepts on integrated disaster risk management.
|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.
|EEA||The European Environment Agency (EEA) provides sound, independent information on the environment for those involved in developing, adopting, implementing and evaluating environmental policy, and also the general public.||Website|
|EGU||The European Geosciences Union (EGU) is the leading organisation for Earth, planetary and space science research in Europe. With the partner organisations worldwide fosters fundamental geoscience research, alongside applied research that addresses key societal and environmental challenges.||Website|
|EGU-NH||The Natural Hazards (NH) Division of the EGU covers all the geological and geophysical processes that can be hazardous and can produce damage to the environment and to the society. Therefore it is a place where scientists and researchers of various geo-disciplines meet with sociologists, economists and people responsible for territorial and urban defense and planning policies. The aim is to improve the understanding of the evolution of the processes and to discuss new technologies, methods and strategies to mitigate their disastrous effects.||Website|
|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|
|ACM||The Association for Computing Machinery is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to advancing the art, science, engineering, and application of information technology, serving both professional and public interests by fostering the open interchange of information and by promoting the highest professional and ethical standards.||Website|
|ISCRAM||The Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM) Community is an international community of researchers, practitioners and policy makers involved in or concerned about the design, development, deployment, use and evaluation of information systems for crisis response and management.||Website|
|EENA - Researchers||EENA, the European Emergency Number Association, is a non-governmental organisation with the mission to contribute to improving the safety and security of the people.
Part of EENA's community is the EENA Network of Researchers which is an international network of researchers in the fields of emergency communications and emergency services. It aims at fostering sharing of information and knowledge among researchers and between researchers and other EENA members from emergency services and industry. In 2019, the network gathers over 100 members!
|CIRCACB||Communication and Information Resource Centre for Administrations, Businesses and Citizens
Networking and information sharing within and with the European Commission
|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|
