On the 20th of September 2016, several partners of the PREDICT project (for VRZHZ and iTTi) took part in a Knowledge Transfer Workshop organised in the framework of the FORTRESS FP7 project (http://fortress-project.eu) in Tiel, the Netherlands. The aim of this workshop was to provide a platform for the exchange of research outcomes between several European projects focusing on crisis management (including PREDICT, FORTRESS, CASCEFF, Snowball and DRIVER). The agenda focused on :
· Empirical findings for reducing cascading effects in crises and enhancing resilience;
· Tools for supporting analysis of cascading effects and decision making before and during crises.
The workshop provided an opportunity to discuss the latest empirical findings in the field of crisis management, resilience and the curbing of cascading effects during crises.
