The ENGAGE project started in July 2020 and for the next 3 years, it will studsocietal resilience. The project considerresilience as an intrinsic ability of society to adjust its functioning and sustain operations before, during and after disasters. ENGAGE will deliver its results as stand-alone outcomes and integrated in a knowledge platform, containing guidance on how to improve societal resilience in different cultural contexts. The first version of the knowledge platform is planned to be available in July 2021.  

In addition to the knowledge platform, the stand-alone results that ENGAGE aims to deliver are: 

  • A model for assessing and methods of improving societal resilience  
  • Best practices for communication and social media  
  • A catalogue of solutions for societal resilience, including recommended guidelines, practices, processes, strategies, methods and tools aimed at first responders, and the authorities 
  • Validated ENGAGE solutions and examples of applications 
  • Guidelines for achieving societal resilience 
  • Knowledge Innovation Community of Practice (KI-CoP), including practitioners, NGOs, VOSTs, scientists, and citizens’ representatives supporting ENGAGE as users and co-owners of its solutions 

Our upcoming articles will cover these project outputs in more detail, as the different research activities are being completed. If these results are interesting, you can stay updated by subscribing to our newsletter and following ENGAGE on social media.
