emBRACE - Building Resilience Amongst Communities in Europe
Start date: 1 October 2011
End date: 30 September 2015
The primary aim of the emBRACE project is to build resilience to disasters amongst communities in Europe. To achieve this, it is vital to merge forces in research knowledge, networking and practices as a prerequisite for more coherent scientific approaches. This we will do in the most collaborative way possible.
If you would like to contribute to the discussions as we develop these ideas, please contact Dr Maureen Fordham, the Scientific Coordinator of the project firstname.lastname@example.org or Hugh Deeming the Technical Officer (Science) of the project email@example.com.
