H2020-DRS-2015 Disaster-resilience: Safeguarding and securing society, including adapting to climate change

Securing the society against disasters is one of the central elements of the functioning of any society. There is barely any societal sector which is not to some extent concerned by disasters and related resilience and security issues. The objective of this call is to reduce the loss of human life, environmental, economic and material damage from natural and man-made disasters, including extreme weather events, crime and terrorism threats. This area will therefore focus on developing technologies and running large-scale demonstration.
