Abstract: Four EU Member States – United Kingdom, Sweden, Finland and Hungary participated in a pilot project to explore the potential of a European partnership to address the key challenges in disaster risk management through providing a platform for integrated and coherent multi-disciplinary scientific advice on a European scale. The preliminary findings of the pilot project indicate that there is scope for a partnership among EU Member States and with the European Commission to address the challenges and opportunities in disaster risk management in a common and coordinated way. This includes sharing of best practices for using science in policy making and sharing scientific knowledge and advice among Member States and with the European Commission. In the four surveyed Member States, scientific input in disaster risk management policy is largely delivered through national risk assessments. It is recommended to extend the pilot project to a larger number of Member States to both confirm these initial findings and to complete the mapping of best practises in using science in policy making and operational practise in disaster risk management in the European Union.
