One of Europe’s leading experts on crisis resilience, Prof. Aassve coordinates the research teams and facilitates dialogue between researchers, policymakers and the public. “Behind us are the days when researchers only presented their findings at the very end of a project”, he says. "FutuRes will continuously invite the feedback of experts and citizens."
