Natural disasters: ARISTOTLE 2 project for setting up a European scientific partnership ready to start
An event taking place at the INGV-National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology is launching the ARISTOTLE 2-ENHSP (European Natural Hazard Scientific Partnership) project, coordinated by INGV.
Funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection (DG-ECHO), ARISTOTLE 2-ENHSP will last three years and will feature 13 European scientific institutions and 2 international organizations in geophysics and meteorology.
The project aims at consolidating the results obtained during the pilot project ARISTOTLE 1 to promote the creation of a European virtual operating centre for natural disasters – e.g. earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes and floods – and to implement the ENHSP-European Natural Hazard Scientific Partnership, a European network for natural risks.
The project aims at consolidating and expanding the network and the services offered in a permanent multi-hazard partnership within a 3-year period of time. In brief, the ARISTOTLE 2-ENHSP project aims at providing an up-to-date and sustainable multi-hazard system of scientific “advice” which exploits all the skills developed within the scientific institutions on the national level, as well as the knowledge, experience and know-how acquired during the ARISTOTLE 1 project.
