MAIN HOST(S): Dipartimento della Protezione Civile

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 09 - 10 Mar 2017 Location: Italy (Rome) Venue: Italian Civil Protection

Practitioners and authorities will be able to discuss the challenges they face to respond to the Sendai Framework and exploit solutions from science. It is an opportunity to identify needs for scientific research as well as results that are ready to be applied.
