Reducing Risks Together

About MYRIAD-EU

MYRIAD-EU is set to change the way disaster risks are managed. Through its systemic and forward-looking approach, the project will offer new ways to assess trade-offs and synergies between economic sectors, hazards and their scales. EU policymakers, decision-makers, and practitioners will receive new tools and solutions to reduce and manage risks in their regions more effectively.

To ensure that MYRIAD-EU delivers actionable results, we will work closely with representatives from the economic sector we study. They are consulted at every stage of the project. This way, we unite the scientific and business communities to fully comprehend the interlinkages between different hazards and economic sectors.

Pilots

The pilots in the North Sea, on the Canary Islands, in Scandinavia, the Danube region and in Italy’s Veneto region are central to MYRIAD-EU. They serve as laboratories for systemic multi-hazard risk assessment and management. Each pilot focuses on the connections between different risks and at least 3 of the following economic sectors:
