Unveiling the C2IMPRESS Project - Building a Future-proof Disaster Resilient Society through Innovative Methodologies and Tools

In Europe and worldwide, there is a notable deficiency in representative data, comprehension, and public awareness when it comes to compound weather and climate extremes. Additionally, inadequate governance mechanisms contribute to the vulnerability, risk, and resilience of individuals, communities, and regions affected by such events. To address these issues, the C2IMPRESS project endeavours to introduce a transformative paradigm shift in disaster and hazard research and innovation. It aims to move away from the conventional "hazard-centric" approach/framework and adopt a pioneering "place and people" centred integrated multi-hazard risk and resilience assessment framework. This webinar will explore the groundbreaking innovations that the C2IMPRESS project brings to enhance the resilience of our society in the face of disasters.

During this webinar, we will provide an in-depth exploration of the C2IMPRESS project, shedding light on its core principles and innovative approaches. By moving beyond traditional methods, C2IMPRESS seeks to establish a paradigm shift in disaster and hazard research, focusing on holistic resilience.

Discover how the C2IMPRESS project challenges the conventional understanding of disaster management by adopting a multi-dimensional perspective emphasising the interplay between people and their environment. Through an integrated approach to risk assessment and resilience, C2IMPRESS aims to enhance our preparedness and response capabilities in the face of various natural hazards.

Join us as we discuss the concepts and methodologies behind the C2IMPRESS project, uncovering how they pave the way for a more resilient society. We will present how the concepts and methodologies are transferred to decision-support tools that are easy to use, robust and precise. This webinar will provide a detailed concept of Earth system Dynamic Intelligence Framework for Multi-hazard event forecasting and early warning with better accuracy and reduced uncertainty. This webinar provides a unique opportunity to engage with leading experts and researchers driving this innovative initiative.
