"CORE contributes to Horizon 2020’s focus on secure societies where citizens are facing increasingly threatening situations. It is built on the activities and results of previous and on-going projects and is driven by end-users within the consortium and their wider stakeholder networks. CORE will develop a harmonized vision of crisis management awareness and overcoming, through a transdisciplinary collaboration involving the environmental science and social science communities. In this way, human factors, social, societal and organizational aspects can be supported by the scientific results obtained in research on environmental and anthropogenic risks. CORE will identify and use best practice and knowledge/learning from certain countries with high levels of risk but where risk awareness is high and will provide optimized actions and solutions to help restructure and rebuild socio-economic structures after a disaster that is essential for the European society. CORE is a multi-disciplinary consortium across and outside Europe established to understand how to define common metrics with respect to the different natural and man-made disaster scenarios, and how to measure, control and mitigate the impact on the populations. Special attention will be given to vulnerable groups: disabled, elderly, poor, as well as women and children. CORE will lead to more efficient policies, governance structures and broad awareness and collaboration among citizens and rescue agencies. Best practices will be identified and reported to policymakers, end-users and disseminated to all stakeholders and NGOs. CORE will devote great attention to education in schools and the training activities are also intended to be an ""awareness campaign"" for young people about the vulnerability of the weak categories that cannot rely on advanced means of communication and of their importance. The young generation, used to the most advanced technologies, might become a sort of ""prevention sentinels""."
