Call for experts No.2 10/11/2021

The Italian Center for Research on Risk Reduction CI3R is launching a call for 2 experts that shall contribute to the writing of the content of the second thematic paper “Good practices of communication in disaster risk and crisis management” of the ROADMAP project and be listed as authors and co-authors.

The ROADMAP project has the main objective to establish a European “Doctrine on disaster risk and crisis management”, funded on the mutual cooperation between scientific communities and DRM authorities. The doctrine, that is intended as “a shared understanding of disaster management between decision-makers and scientific actors”, will be based on selected experiences, good practices and implemented solutions in EU Member States. Three thematic papers will be prepared on relevant themes in the DRM field. The selection of topics for the thematic papers and their critical review is achieved through synergic interaction with a suitably established Advisory Group (AG), formed by experts both on science and decision making in DRM.
