PRDRs are convening representatives from EC DGs (in particular DG HOME, DG ECHO/ERCC, DG RTD and DG CLIMA), the JRC/DRMKC, international organisations (UNISDR), national civil protection authorities from Member States and selected Research & Innovation projects and/or initiatives to look into the possibility of a pan-European approach to capability development and innovation management in Disaster Risk Reduction and Crisis Management.
