ResiStand Conference - A New Platform for Boosting Disaster Resilience through Standardisation

How can we improve the crisis management and disaster resilience capabilities of the European Union and individual Member States through standardisation? What are today's drivers and constraints to participating in standardisation activities? How can we bring together the main stakeholders- Standardisation Organisations, End-Users and Suppliers from industry and research - to facilitate innovation and enhance societal safety?

Workshop on standardisation potential 11th September 2017, Brussels

The H2020-project ResiStand contributes to enhanced disaster resilience capabilities by identifying and analysing the drivers, constraints and expectations towards standardisation of three main stakeholder communities: Standardisation Organisations, End-Users / Practitioners in crisis management and disaster resilience, and Suppliers, consisting of researchers, industry and SMEs.

ResiStand cordially invites you to participate in its workshop on standardisation potential in disaster resilience. The workshop agenda is available below.
