The Pandemic and Disaster Preparedness Center aims to prepare society for future pandemics and disasters. We will reduce vulnerabilities and risks and build resilience through effective disaster prevention, preparedness and recovery measures.

Convergence of the technical, medical and social sciences is essential for developing the next generation of approaches to disasters and pandemics. In the foreseeable future, our society can expect many more and unforeseen virus outbreaks and extreme events because of climate change.

But how do we protect society from the next pandemic or disaster? Which lessons learnt could develop prevention and intervention measures, and how could research contribute to preparedness? If you want to contribute to the above questions, please look at our current job opportunities.
