Expert Survey

In general there is a clear recommendation for ICT research in the field of Environment Risk Management to be strictly carried out in co-operation with experts from the natural hazards fields, with experts from a social science background (sociology, economy, politics, psychology) and with experts from a technical background. Technological solutions developed only by one of the expert groups will not be able to deliver the possible benefits.
