Abstract

The JRC enlargement project, "Management of Natural and Technological Hazards" (Project PA No. 26: http://www.jrc.cec.eu.int/enlargement/jrc-projects.htm), was launched during the Fifth Framework Programme, with the main objective of providing technical support to the EU Candidates Countries for the management of risk associated with natural and technological hazards, particularly in the area of data collection and information management systems. The project final report was published as a EUR document (EUR 20834 EN). As a follow up to this activity, a strategy for future collaboration between the JRC and the Accession and Candidate Countries within the SixthFramework Programme has been established. This was fully discussed and agreed with Accession and Candidate Countries’ participants in the Workshop on Collaborative Activities held in Ispra on 22-24 June 2003, where a detailed work programme was defined. The main focus was on data collection and analysis, information management systems and the development and application of risk assessment techniques in support to the management of natural and technological hazards. Amongst the specific topics identified during the Workshop, particular attention was given to the application of risk assessment techniques for the production of Safety Reports of Seveso II type establishments.
