ESPREssO is a research project that aims at contributing to a new strategic vision to approach natural risk reduction and climate change adaptation in the EU, thereby enhancing syenrgies and opening new frontiers for research and policy making. The project is funded by EU under the H2020 program, and consists of 7 partners in 6 different countries - the University of Copenhagen being one of these.
The project structure is built upon the central role of three main challenges:

  1. To propose ways to create more coherent national and European approaches on Disaster Risk Reduction, Climate Change Adaptation and resilience strengthening;
  2. To enhance risk management capabilities by bridging the gap between science and legal/policy issues at local and national levels in six European countries;
  3. To address the issue of efficient management of trans-boundary crises.
