Description- The PARATUS is a Horizon Europe-funded project that aims at increasing the preparedness of first and second responders in the face of multi-hazard events and to reduce the risks related to impacts on various sectors that result from complex disasters. For the project, AIT partners with other partners from 12 countries. The PARATUS project will provide stakeholders in disaster risk management with tools to account for cross-sectoral impacts and the dynamic nature of compounding disasters. The project will develop an open-source platform for dynamic risk assessment that allows to analyze and evaluate multi-hazard impact chains, risk reduction measures, and disaster response scenarios in the light of systemic vulnerabilities and uncertainties. These services will be co-created within a unique transdisciplinary consortium of research organizations, NGOs, SMEs, first and second responders, and local and regional authorities.
