The creation of networks of researchers and research centres will be fundamental for reinforcing cooperation with Europe’s neighbours in the context of ERA. In addition, WP5 aims to promote and carry out general public awareness initiatives, to establish two-way communication channels with stakeholders and policymakers, and to disseminate information about SASPARM, its objectives, the approaches and the ongoing results.
Description of work and role partners
Task 5.1 Definition of a strategy for networking
Participants: NNU, EUCENTRE
The improvement of PS capacities in seismic risk mitigation will be achieved through networking of PS and EU research centres in view of disseminating scientific information, identifying partners and setting up joint research. In order to reach the objectives of WP5, a strategy for both the development of new networks and the reinforcement of existing ones will be developed by NNU staff with the supporting action of EUCENTRE.
The first requirement will be the definition of the method for identifying the partners for creating networks (e.g., experts in the fields of seismic risk mitigation and research centres with a leading role in the same field) at local, national, and international level. Then, the second requirement will be the definition of a way for an active involvement of stakeholders and potential end-users of the project knowledge and products, namely the scientific and technical communities, national authorities, industry, relevant European associations and federations for infrastructures and networks.
