Seminars will be held via zoom – details will be sent to the CDRN mailing list, which you can join here: Please contact the organisers with queries.

The Cambridge Disaster Research Network (CDRN) is a network for those interested in disasters and natural hazards from departments across the University of Cambridge. Our objective is to connect hazard and disaster research and researchers across disciplines, and to link academic approaches to the needs and experience of practitioners. We particularly hope to connect scientific understanding of hazards to social science, humanities and arts research, and industry practitioners, required to prevent disasters.
