FORTRESS partners are involved in the following upcoming events:

Knowledge Sharing Workshop in Tiel

As part of the FORTRESS research project, on 20 September 2016, the FORTRESS Consortium will hold a knowledge-sharing workshop in Tiel, the Netherlands. The workshop will provide a platform for the exchange of research outcomes between related European projects. In this respect the focus will be on 1) empirical findings for reducing cascading effects in crises and enhancing resilience, and 2) tools for supporting decision making before and during crises. The workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss the latest empirical findings in the field of crisis management, resilience and the curbing of cascading effects during crises. The knowledge-sharing workshop is being held back to back with the Domino workshop, organised by IFV, which will provide a further opportunity for project representatives to engage with first responders.
