“This is a recognition that the work we do is at a high international level. The awards are prestigious and will promote us to a number of new cooperation partners”, says Professor Emeritus Jose Julio Gonzalez.

The Centre for Integrated Emergency Management (CIEM) has previously been awarded a prize for best website and received great evaluation from the European Commission. Gonzalez himself was awarded the King’s Medal of Merit earlier this year, and now the research centre has received another two innovation awards.

The awards were given to the Smart Mature Resilience research project, which ran from 2015 to 2018.
