The Evidence for Policy in Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Summer School 2023 is a unique event where policymakers and scientists meet and together develop skills in using evidence for creating policy solutions - and leading thinkers and practitioners producing science and policy around risk reduction, preparedness and response engage closely with participants through participatory, interactive masterclasses. The objective of the School is for participants to gain new knowledge on how to better integrate scientific evidence into policy-making:

  • Scientists will learn how to better communicate and visualise their results, tackle uncertainty and align their projects with policy needs.
  • Policymakers will learn how research can support policy, which science can be relevant to their field, where to find it and how to interpret it, and what can be expected from researchers.

The Summer School will be held in Pisa (Italy) on 29 - 31 May 2023 and will gather 70 select participants from EU Member States, UCPM Participating States, international organisation partners, universities and academic institutes as well as civil society and private entities. It will be organised and hosted by the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna research university, as part of the Civitas Soteria consortium (ICF, Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, and M.D.F training), on behalf of the European Commission. The event is a reproduction of the 2020 version of the School.
