About the programme

Crisis and preparedness management, also referred to as risk management depending on the context, is more important than ever.

Through being a meeting arena for the players involved in crisis management and logistics, the programme contributes to joint understanding and development of networks. Particular focus is aimed at supply systems before and after an unexpected incident – how to build up capacity and expertise for logistics.
