This interactive and free webinar is for academics, policy-makers of all levels, crisis management practitioners, civil society and private sector representatives.
The COVID-19 pandemic, climate change, the war in Ukraine, refugee crises, inflation... these crises and more have recently dominated headlines. They cross national borders and sectors, and are complex and long-term in nature. Evidence shows that the cascading and rippling effects of crises extend to all parts of our society and the natural environment.

The European Union was never intended to be a crisis manager, but should it play a more important role in tackling crises? Should it improve its strategic crisis management, and if so, how? What solutions are suggested by the latest scientific evidence? What ethical considerations should be taken into account in preparation and management of crises?  

This interactive and free webinar is for academics, policy-makers of all levels, crisis management practitioners, civil society and private sector representatives. It will discuss the main conclusions of the Science Advice Mechanism’s Evidence Review Report and Scientific Opinion, and a statement from the European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies.
