DAREnet is delighted to announce its 2nd Annual Practitioner Forum which will take place on 13th and 14th May 2020 in Zagreb, Croatia.
This year’s edition of the Annual Forum is co-organised by DAREnet and the EU Strategy for the Danube Region’s Priority Area 5 on Environmental Risks. The overall thematic focus of the event will be on practitioner training, including gaps and challenges in that thematic area as well as potential innovations that address these challenges. In this context, DAREnet will present its second edition of the Research and Innovation Roadmap as well as the Portfolio of Practitioner Innovation Initiatives. EUSDR PA5 will introduce their Disaster Management Working Group concept and give an overview on how projects and initiatives related to disaster response can be supported by the macroregional strategy. The event will include high-level keynote speakers from policy making, practitioner organisations, academia and research. Interactive workshops will facilitate knowledge gathering and professional exchange. The event will be concluded by a small-scale flood exercise at the Rakitje Lake.
