Call for Applications: Interdisciplinary Pressure Cooker on Risk Communication at UR2018

Are you interested in risk communication?

The 2018 Understanding Risk Forum is hosting an intensive event for interdisciplinary teams to test their innovative, creative, scientific and technological skills to co-develop risk communication solutions to real world challenges facing local decision makers. The “pressure cooker” is aimed at young professionals and students (under 35) and mentors in relevant fields.

The event is organized by GFDRR, the Water Youth Network with financial support from the UK Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and FM Global.

Do you know young professionals and researchers passionate about risk communication? Please share this call within in your organisation and network. We are really looking forward to bringing together diverse teams of young professionals from different backgrounds and regions. Further details about the event and application procedure can be found here: https://understandrisk.org/event/risk-communication-ur2018/. The call will close on Friday, January 26th. 

We have limited funding available to support applicants from Argentina, Mexico, India, Brazil and the UK based researchers only, therefore, we would be really grateful if you could consider other funding possibilities available to support young professionals attendance at the event.

For any questions about the application process, please contact Lydia Cumiskey at l.cumiskey@wateryouthnetwork.org
