Role: Polimi (Department of Architecture and Urban Studies, DASTU) is the coordinator of the project. It provides expertise in a wide range of risk assessment fields, ranging from earthquakes, to floods, to na-techs. It is also leading the Po River Basin living lab; researchers of the Polimi team have a long experience in IT platform and will contribute to the development of the knowledge management framework.

Role: HUA is leading WP1 concerning who knows what about disaster risk and mitigation. Furthermore, HUA examines how decision making regarding DRR and CCA is framed in the private sector and the third sector in different contexts and scales. It contributes, among others, with examples from the food sector relating with CCA, as well as from emergency management and reconstruction of areas that suffered from forest fires and EQs with a view to sustainability. In addition, HUA will organize a Workshop in Athens on how the economic and social crisis affects DRR and CCA.

Role: Adelphi leads a range of dissemination, communication, and policy engagement activities for the KNOW-4-DRR project. Furthermore, in collaboration with the other project partners, we coordinate a targeted set of policy-makers and stakeholders in testing and validating the project results and tools. Adelphi additionally provides support for project management and for aspects of policy analysis. Finally, Adelphi contributes to dissemination activities for the project’s results, including through the publication of tailor-made policy briefs and brochures.
Team: Philip Bubeck, Walter Kahlenborn.
Role: UNISAVOIE has to deliver workpackage 1.4 (in collaboration with CIESAS and WP 1 partners), to work in close relationship with French ONRN on specific case studies (First, Seine-Amont, second, La Faute sur Mer) in order to test the usefulness and the relevance of DKM, to follow up ONRN as a knowledge management system on disaster prevention. Lastly, UNISAVOIE has to manage the final KNOW-4-DRR conference in Chambéry.
Team: Patrick Pigeon, Marie-Emilie Forget and, working for MRN as well as ONRN, in close relationship with UNISAVOIE : Roland Nussbaum, Sarah Gerin.
Role: The Interfaculty Department of Geoinformatics (Z_GIS) is an established interdisciplinary centre of competence at Paris Lodron University of Salzburg (PLUS). PLUS provides valuable experience and expertise in the field of spatial analysis, which feeds directly into the project. This includes the application of innovative methods for spatial decision support and policy implementation relating to DRR and CCA, which have been applied in various case studies. PLUS is also involved in the project management of KNOW-4-DRR.
Team: Peter Zeil, Stefan Kienberger, Raphael Spiekermann.
Role: CIESAS provides connection to Latin American experiences and policies. Our specific tasks are to identifying the main barriers in knowledge sharing within and among the different groups. Also we are responsible of a local seminar and we will develop of a keynote policy document on knowledge management for DRR.
Team: Virginia García-Acosta, Fernando Briones.
Role: EURAC will provide a contribution on the base of its expertise on the issues of adaptation to climate change and will work on the implementation of an interactive workshop for the science and decision making community on the theme of “uncertainty in disaster risk reduction”.
Team: Stefan Schneiderbauer, Marco Pregnolato, Lydia Pedoth.
Role: CSIC group main duties include leading the analysis of fragmentation of knowledge among scientists, co-leading the production of documents on EU educational activities- and EU policies on DRR, organizing a national seminar in Spain (and related actions), and carrying out the “living lab” of Lorca, Spain.
Team: María-José Jiménez, Mariano García-Fernández, Alba Beltrán Diez.
Role: DWF has a twofold role, as an active participant in the development of various tasks that address the questions raised within the project, and the contribution of non-European case materials and drawing on the lessons of participative sharing of knowledge about disaster risk reduction and urban resilience and steps towards climate change adaptation in Africa and SE Asia. It is leading tasks 3.2 and 4.2. It also carries one of the three living labs of the project, in Vietnam.
Team: John Norton, Chantry Guillaume.
Role: UNU-EHS is an active participant in the development of various tasks within the project, notably lead WP 4 on “Monitoring the development and implementation of relevant EU policies for DRR”, and leads Task 4.4 on “the implementation of an interactive workshop between decision makers and public administrators”. UNU-EHS contributes to the non-European case materials, particularly on the thematic of risk management for tsunamis in Indonesia and development planning in the context of sea-level rise in Vietnam.
Team: Fabrice Renaud, Nike Sommerwerk, Zita Sebesvari, Jörg Szarzynski, Matthews Mullins.
Role: TiConUno provides strong support to KNOW-4-DRR with respect to all issues concerning dissemination of the project to different audiences.
In fact, TiConUno assists the consortium in disseminating relevant project’s result and ongoing activities through the radio channel of Radio 24 to the larger public; it permits ongoing information regarding the projects outcomes trough the Web-TV Tiwù and thanks to the fact it directs the observatory SMAU-Anci provides direct link to the Italian association of Mayors. Furtehrmore, TiConUno provides technical guidance with respect to professional methods to communicate with different audiences through different means and tools.
Team: Federico Pedrocchi, Attilia Cozzaglio, Chiara Albicocco, Maurizio Melis and Enrico Rini are scientific journalists. They collaborate on Moebius, Triwù, Smart City.
