Horizon Europe: research and innovation in disaster resilience and crisis management
Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding programme for research and innovation. It tackles climate change, helps to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth.
Activities to support disaster-resilient societies are funded through its cluster for civil security for society.
More information on this funding including policies and work programmes can be found on Horizon Europe’s page ‘Cluster 3: Civil security for society’.
Project Explorer: a tool for connections in risk management research
Project Explorer is a tool developed by European Commission’s Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre and its department for migration and home affairs. Projects for disaster-resilient societies can be found on Project Explorer, as well as from wide-ranging topics of relevance including health, climate and the environment, secure societies and energy.
Working in close collaboration with the Community for European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS), the Disaster Risk Management Knowledge Centre developed Project Explorer as a common repository of relevant research and operational projects, sharing their results for maximum uptake.
Project Explorer identifies networks and supports connections and synergies across different research funding instruments, promoting a cross-sectorial approach to risk management research.

Community for European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS)
In the area of disaster resilience and crisis management, Horizon Europe supports the Community for European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS).
CERIS connects research activities and streamlines them under one umbrella, bringing together different actors to work in four thematic areas: fighting crime and terrorism, disaster resilient societies, border management, and strengthened security research and innovation. CERIS analyses capability needs and gaps and identifies solutions. It translates capability gaps and potential solutions into research needs, identifies funding opportunities and synergies between different funding instruments, standardisation of research-related needs, integrating the views of citizens.
