ISCRAM 2017 Symposiums

EU Project Symposium

Introduction to the EU Project Symposium

The EU Project Symposium first came to ISCRAM in 2015. This year, the EU Project Symposium will once again return to ISCRAM, providing European projects focusing on crisis and disaster management with a dedicated space to present their projects and network with representatives from industry, academia and the practitioner community. In 2017, the EU Project Symposium will include 5-minute elevator pitch presentations from representatives from EU projects, outlining the project’s main innovation(s). The pitch will also provide an opportunity for presenters to pitch further collaboration opportunities, thereby inviting discussion to drive future research and innovation activities in this domain. The symposium will also include a panel discussion, on future trends in crisis management research and a guest speaker from the European Commission. Projects are also invited to present at the EU Project Fair – a space for networking, poster presentations and demonstrations. The day is intended to provide participants with ample opportunities for networking, and we hope you will join us. To participate, please complete the application form below.
