The Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network formally established on 10 November 2021

The Commission just published the Decision ((EU) 2021/1956) to establish the Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network, with a strong Science Pillar, clearly referencing the DRMKC. This is a major step in the science-policy interface in the DRM domain. It is also an example of how a JRC Knowledge Centre can “mature” into a more stable and long-term initiative built-in in legislation.

Three upcoming events will now prepare the launch of the Network: the 5th DRMKC Annual Seminar (17-18 November), the European Forum for Disaster Risk Reduction (24-26 Nov), and then the Knowledge Network Day (7 Dec)
