3rd International ConferenceNatural Hazards and Risks in a Changing World


MYRIAD-EU is a H2020 project that aims to catalyse a paradigm shift in how risks are currently assessed and managed. Instead of addressing risks and hazards one by one, leading scientists from across Europe have co-developed the first harmonised framework for multi-hazard, multi-sector, and systemic risk management. Through its systemic and forward-looking approach, the project offers new ways to assess trade-offs and synergies between economic sectors, hazards and their scales. The MYRIAD-EU project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme call H2020-LC-CLA-2018-2019-2020 under grant agreement number 101003276.

Risk KAN

The Knowledge-Action Network (KAN) on Emergent Risks and Extreme Events serves as a comprehensive inter- and transdisciplinary hub for scientists, experts, and communities focusing on multi-hazard risks, disaster risk reduction, and governance of extreme events. As a Future Earth Global Research Network (GRN) and a joint initiative of the Future Earth, IRDR, WCRP, and WWRP programs, the Risk KAN actively promotes the exchange of information, knowledge, and data.


“Natural hazards and risks in a changing world (NatRiskChange)” aims to to pursue the development of methods to improve hazard and risk analysis and quantification based on the transient, non-stationary nature of hazards and risks in response to changing natural and anthropogenically altered components of the Earth system. Key scientific aims are the development, testing, and pilot application of studies on identification, quantification (mechanisms) and prediction of transient natural hazards and associated risks.



CLICCS (“Climate, Climatic Change, and Society”) is a Cluster of Excellence at the University of Hamburg. CLICCS has established a long-term program spanning the range from basic research on climate dynamics and climate-related social dynamics to the transdisciplinary exploration of human–environment interactions. 


The European Space Agency (ESA) is Europe’s gateway to space. Its mission is to shape the development of Europe’s space capability and ensure that investment in space continues to deliver benefits to the citizens of Europe and the world
