About the public symposium
How can public services help us respond to various crises such as conflict and climate change? What role do different actors play in preparing for future pandemics? What lessons can we learn from civil emergencies regarding researchers’ access to data, and how can we apply these lessons to future processes? On 22 June 2023, the scientific symposium ‘Crises and the Importance of Research: How Prepared Can We Be?’ invites international experts to explore how research contributes to responding to and preparing for multiple and entangled crises of our times.
International experts from the spheres of research, academia, and policy will explore how research contributes to increasingly relevant issues of disaster response, pandemic preparedness, and data management during emergencies. Sessions include:
- Disaster response and adapting public services
- Pandemic preparedness and building resilience
- Data for emergencies
- In conversation: Perspectives from Ukraine
