Susan Nissen says...
"Through the last several years we have seen a continued rise of disasters, victimization, and economic losses from disasters occurring throughout the world. I think we all share the same goal of a more effective and efficient management of disasters. In a world based upon high need of expertise with a strong knowledge base, there is an increased need for well educated professionals in this field of work.
This programme presents a unique opportunity for both employers of the national emergency services, international students and others to further develop their professional abilities at the two universities in Copenhagen and in Lund."
