Research in collaboration
The triple-helix model for collaboration between authorities, industry and universities is fundamental for CNDS. The application forming the basis for CNDS was sponsored both by authorities and private enterprises. Once the Swedish Government decided to endorse the Centre of Natural Disaster Science, more organisations have expressed their interest.
Your organisation may have a natural-disater-related problem that can be of interest for researchers and PhD students in CNDS? Could your problem perhaps lead to a well-defined PhD or Master-thesis project or maybe even form the basis for a large research project within the framework of CNDS? Contact CNDS if you this this might be relevant for you and your organisation.
