CARISMAND Story Continues!

When disaster strikes, everybody is concerned in one way or another. CARISMAND project aims to reach various audiences: scientists and emergency workers, policy makers and citizens, SMEs and civil society, etc.

Therefore, special focus in the project is placed on Dissemination and Communication. You could find detailed project information and updates on our website, follow us on Twitter (@CARISMAND) or join our community on LinkedIn.

The Dissemination and Communication Strategy of CARISMAND project reflects the current changes in the environment and the new findings revealed in throughout the project implementation. An updated summary of the strategy is already published on our Deliverables page.
