The Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network - a knowledge broker and innovation catalyst

Through the Union Civil Protection Mechanism (UCPM), the European Union aims to strengthen cooperation between EU Member States on civil protection and to improve joint prevention, preparedness and response to disasters. Living European solidarity, efficient and sustainable networking of actors across Europe and at different levels, as well as an interdisciplinary, cross-border and cross-sector exchange of information, knowledge and experience are now more important than ever in civil protection and disaster management. This is exactly the objective of the new Union Civil Protection Knowledge Network. It aims to support learning from the past and preparing for new dangers through the continuous exchange of experiences, expertise and innovation – i.e. “to build forward better”. The cooperation of civil protection and disaster management practitioners with academia, science and research is crucial to carry out evidence-based disaster prevention, to integrate the latest research results, innovative technologies (e.g. virtual reality/augmented reality) and teaching approaches (e.g. e- and blended learning) into civil protection training and practice, and thus optimise these.
