The above mentioned publications include:
- A book on the state of the art in the various natural hazards from the research point of view. A wide board of Editors and external experts will collaborate for the preparation of this publication.

- A publication including a collection of information regarding the initiatives, services and policies of the EC and International organisations to support R&D activity in the field of Natural disasters.

Furthermore the envisaged project aims to update the EU-Medin database of metadata, concerning projects results and to ensure the maintenance of the EU-Medin web portal to serve as a web platform of a virtual organisation for supporting the dissemination of R&D results regarding natural disasters and for facilitating the interaction and synergy between research groups and scientists in Europe and worldwide.
