Link Campus University takes part in the European project #LINKS - Strengthening links between technologies and society for European disaster resilience .

The aim of the project is to study and evaluate at European level the effects of using social media and crowdsourcing on disaster resilience. This project will develop a framework that can be used to understand, measure and direct crowdsourcing in disaster situations, taking into consideration the diversity between the perception of disaster risk and vulnerability (DRPV), disaster management processes (DMP). and technologies applied to the community in disaster situations (DCT).

Link Campus University, through the DASIC - Digital Administration and Social Innovation Center, will carry out the dissemination and communication activities of the project, providing the most suitable tools to disseminate the project results to the various target groups identified. Doing so, we will help create a community of stakeholders on these issues, which brings together first responders, public authorities, civil society organizations, businesses, citizens and researchers.

The LINKS kickoff meeting took place on 25 and 26 June, the first of the appointments between the 17 partners, from all over Europe, who make up the consortium of the project itself. Link Campus University, in particular, during the kick off meeting presented the first carried out activities, regarding the definition of the visual identity of the project, the social strategy to be implemented and the mapping of the main stakeholders to be involved.
