WP5: European Inventory of Disaster Resilience Education

WP5 aimed to establish the current teaching and research capacity among European HEIs in the field. In order to achieve this, WP5 developed an inventory of disaster resilience related education programmes currently being undertaken within Europe.  The scope of work package 5 was to establish the current teaching and research capacity among HEIs addressing the threat posed by hazards of natural and human origin. The findings of this WP were part of the effort to develop a roadmap for European education for societal disaster resilience. The objectives of this work were fulfilled through the design of an online survey of European HEIs. ANDROID has undertaken the survey to establish the current teaching and research capacity among European Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) in the disaster resilience field. 

The WP used the ANDROID network as a source for primary and secondary research. Initially, the WP5 Working Group has undertaken a survey of partner institutions as these were expected to make up a significant portion of current education capacity within Europe. All partners were invited to participate to the online survey. Outside Android, only the programmes directly related to disaster resilience were targeted generic viagra india. This excluded programmes with emphasis and learning outcomes in different subjects offering a very small proportion of courses on disaster resilience related issues, in an effort to avoid misleading and biased results. The findings of this WP clearly demonstrate the lack of academic programmes in the field of disaster resilience across Europe especially at bachelor degree level and emphasises the multidisciplinary nature of the field.
