sCience & human factOr for Resilient sociEty (CORE)
Blending this European specific and global best practice we will provide optimized actions and solutions to help restructure and rebuild socio-economic structures after a disaster that is essential for the European society. A key characteristic of disaster response is the uncertainty and dynamics of the situation and, as consequence, the need for an integrated systemic approach able to (i) deliver appropriate and bespoke interventions also according to the human and social specificities in affected areas and populations (ii) empower adequate and collaborative co-management (governance based on socio-ecological systems) of crisis from citizens’ side.
Objective: The overall objective of the CORE will be to develop a harmonized vision of crisis management awareness and capability. There is indeed a need to strengthen disaster resilience at the level of municipalities, Member States and EU agencies, which must take into account the diversity of European society, and the variability of human factors. This can only be achieved through transdisciplinary collaboration involving the environmental science and social science communities. In this way, human factors, social, societal and organisational aspects can be supported by the scientific results obtained in research on environmental and anthropogenic risks. The meeting of two communities: social sciences and the results obtained in research on environmental risks is essential for the coherence and effectiveness of the project to be carried out.
