Preventing and fighting future crises: HOTREC joins the MYRIAD project
HOTREC is taking part in MYRIAD, a 4-year project part of the Horizon 2020 EU framework programme for research and innovation. The main objective is improving the understanding, assessment and management of existing multi-hazard risks – such as droughts, vulcanos, storms and heavy rain, to name a few – and avoiding their impact.
The EU-MYRIAD consortium will count on the expertise of industry stakeholders, researchers and experts in the field, including universities, research institutes, companies and NGOs. The EU project will target six different sectors, namely: tourism; infrastructure & transport; food & agriculture; energy; finance; and ecosystem & forestry.
IHOTREC will be involved in 2 pilots focusing on the Canary Islands (Spain) and the Veneto region (Italy): our goal will be providing input to all project phases and finding experts to participate in workshops and communication strategies. We will provide information to public authorities and draft guidelines and training materials for SMEs on how to prevent & react if a crisis occurs.
