The Extended Partnership (EP) RETURN - multi-Risk sciEnce for resilienT commUnities undeR a changiNg climate - is created with respect to the theme “Environmental, natural and anthropogenic risks” to strengthen research chains at national level and to promote their participation in European and global strategic value chains. The EP RETURN will contribute to enforce the key competences, the technological and knowledge transfer, and to strengthen Italian governance in managing disaster risk, through the enhancement of basic knowledge (low TRL) towards technology application and exploitation (medium-high TRL), with the involvement of public administrations, stakeholders, and private companies. The main scientific objectives of the EP RETURN, pursuant with new challenges proposed by the National Research Plan (PNR) objectives and priorities, are: − A better UNDERSTANDING of Environmental, Natural and Anthropic Risks, as well as their interrelation with the effect of climate change effects. − Enhance risk prevision and methodologies for prevention, adaptation and mitigation. − Develop new methodologies/technologies for monitoring. − Foster a more efficient and sustainable use of data, products and services. − STRENGTHEN THE BRIDGE FROM RESEARCH TO FINAL PRODUCTS while transversally enhancing the competences, technological transfer, and service integration. The enhanced process understanding will improve the predictive skills and promote the effective use of planning and forecasting tools towards the development of an integrated framework, incorporating data from monitoring networks for different environmental, natural and anthropogenic hazards, handling with both traditional and advanced technologies, with background data (demographic registries, cadastral registries, land use chart and topographic maps), as strongly suggested by PNR. The use of such an integrated framework unlocks unprecedented opportunities in disaster risk management, removing the fragmentation of information and strengthening a holistic management within a multi-disciplinary culture. In such a way the EP RETURN aims to develop a common input exchange protocol among the different thematic areas to ensure interoperability of models developed within and across them.  

The project is financed by the Italian PNRR (Piano Nazionale di Ripresa e Resilienza).
