Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre

The Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre of the European Commission integrates existing scientific multi-disciplinary knowledge and co-develops innovative solutions for existing needs. Activities of the DRMKC support the translation of complex scientific data and analyses into usable information and provides science-based advice for DRM policies.

The scientific activities of the Knowledge Network are led by the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre (DRMKC), the science and knowledge service of the European Commission. Established in 2015, the DRMKC brings together experts and knowledge from different locations inside and outside the Commission to provide solid scientific evidence for policy-making.

As a nucleus of the Knowledge Network Science Pillar, the DRMKC proposes opportunities for co-developing collective knowledge through a number of its well-established activities:
