LINKS “Strengthening links between technologies and society for European disaster resilience” is a comprehensive study on disaster governance in Europe. The overall aim of the LINKS project is to strengthen links between technologies and society for improved European disaster resilience, by producing sustainable advanced learning on the use of social media and crowdsourcing (SMCS) in disasters.

The First LINKS H2020 Project Conference will be held on 2 July from 9.30 to 12.20. Its objective is discussing the results of the first year of the project. 

The conference is open to all, and may be of particular interest to researchers, practitioners, policy makers, industry and citizens, actively working, directly impacted and/or interested in areas related to SMCS and crisis and disaster management.
