NEOHAZ goes in the second round

The NEOHAZ project will be funded by the Heidelberg Academy of Sciences and Humanities for a second phase till the end of 2018. This prolonging enables further research about the integration of implicit knowledge from non-scientists in disaster management. The findings and methods of the first part will be used within the context of a case study in Germany to have a comparison to the results from the research in Chile. Moreover, effects of geographical, socio-economic and demographic factors on the results of the new methods can be evaluated and used for country-specific adaptations.
