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
- Identify the key dimensions of resilience across a range of disciplines and domains
- Develop indicators and indicator systems to measure resilience concerning natural disaster events
- Model societal resilience through simulation experiments
- Provide a general conceptual framework of resilience, ‘tested’ and grounded in cross-cultural contexts
- Build networks and share knowledge across a range of stakeholders
- Tailor communication products and project outputs and outcomes to multiple collaborators, stakeholders and user groups.
