The Network supports all manner of research and innovation projects and are superb research partners. Many programmes require a balance of academic and practical participants and RAN typically fulfils the latter.
With the broadest range of Civil Protection experts from many Countries, we provide practitioners from all disciplines including Rescue, Policing & Security, Medical and Health. Subject wise, our experts range from service specific (eg police specislists) through to niche components of resilience and CP such as climate change, energy technology, logistics etc.
We work well as part of consortia and are often happy to contribute to or lead projects and work-packages specifically designed to hear from international practitioner bodies or to test research outcomes in a realistic environment.
If you're a private Company looking to research or discuss innovative solutions in the area of Crisis Management or response, we have the opening you're looking for! As a Network, we manage the Centre of Expertise on behalf of the European project Driver+. This means that we have experts that can help you gain exposure for your ideas and products across Europe, help you to expose them to real market testing and evaluation in a safe and controled manner and, most importantly, register them on a portfolio of Solutions used by the European CP Market as a 'first point-of-call' for new products.
RAN has a well-documented pedigree of successful submissions for grant applications from a broad range of sources including the EuropeAid, H2020, The European Commission and various Development Banks.
We stand ready to diuscuss any research needs you may have and to engage you in our existing projects should the opportunity arise. Please contact us for a discussion
Even the most academic research benefits from practitioner workpackages adding credibility. In support of consortium goals, we build such workpackages specifically to add value to research proposals through the EU's Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe programmes
