This is because I know that there is a vibrant and innovative multi-disciplinary hazards and disaster research and practice community out there. I firmly believe that this community holds the keys to a more sustainable future. This fills me with a sense of hope for what is possible in this world, especially as we join together to move findings into action.
Please know, a similar appeal will be following soon for interdisciplinary researchers and teams from other disciplines to join the I nterdisciplinary S cience and E ngineering E xtreme E vents R esearch network— ISEEER. The mission of SSEER is to 1 identify and connect social science researchers to one another, to interdisciplinary teams, and to communities at risk to and affected by hazards and disasters; and to 2 amplify and advance social science hazards and disaster research.
Social and behavioral scientists from around the world who study hazards and disasters are invited to join SSEER, including: academic researchers, students, and applied and professional researchers in independent, government, industry, and not-for-profit sectors. If you would like to join the SSEER network of social science hazards and disaster researchers, please sign-up here: hazards.
