As a follow-up of fruitful meetings in the Disaster-Resilient Societies (DRS) Thematic Area held from February to May 2021 within the “Community of European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS)” and a successful CBRN-related event co-organised by 4 projects in September 2021, DG HOME has encouraged H2020 projects to join forces for co-organising a DRS event under the CERIS umbrella on the 13-15 December 2021.
Six projects are hence working together to set up an agenda that will cover discussions on societal resilience (13th December, session co-organised by the LINKS and RESILOC projects), technologies for first responders (14th December, session co-organised by the INGENIOUS, CURSOR and FASTER projects) and standardisation (15th December, session co-organised by the STRATEGY project).
The sessions will involve a larger number of H2020 projects, thus providing a high-level platform of exchanges in the DRS area that will contribute to CERIS objectives. In addition, information will be provided on Horizon Europe DRS topics for 2022.
The meeting, to be held in Brussels (BAO Congress Centre), intends to be of hybrid format, mixing virtual attendance with a limited physical participation. The agendas of the different sessions will be released before the end of November along with the opening of the registration platform.
The overall meeting will take place from Monday 13th December at 10:30 to Wednesday 15th December at 16:00. Please save the date in case you are interested to join. Further information will be released soon.
