The Disaster Research Conference Fachtagung Katastrophenforschung 2023 will take place from September 11th to 12th at the Montanuniversität Leoben. The aim is to bring together science and practice in disaster management in order to be as well prepared as possible for the challenges of preparing for and dealing with disasters. At the symposium, research results and projects will be presented from the application side and possibilities for utilization will be pointed out. Plenty of space and time for networking are also planned.
We are pleased to announce that the Johanniter Research & Innovation Centre has joined DCNA as an associate member.
Since the beginning of the year, DCNA is part of another EU-funded project: CREXDATA develops a prediction-as-a-service platform that will allow for predictive analytics and forecasting under uncertainty for proactive decision making in crises. Learn more about the project in the following press release.
The TREEADS project consortium has published an informational video to showcase all the info about the project. Watch it here.
We're happy to announce a new project in the DCNA: MEASURE is a KIRAS project that started in November. It aims at developing an innovative evaluation tool that supports the evaluation of exercises through a wide variety of measurement sensors and the analysis of key performance indicators. The kick-off event took place in November at the AIT in Vienna.
On October 26, we exhibited as part of the open house of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research. We were available to visitors for questions about security and disaster research.
