Dr Pitidis attends RiskPACC 3rd Awareness Workshop

Dr Pitidis attended the EU-funded project RiskPACC 3rd Awareness Workshop organised at European Forum for Urban Security (Efus) and hosted by the 20th district City Hall in Paris between 12-13 February, representing the Warwick team.

The RiskPACC 3rd Awareness Workshop was organised by the RiskPACC team along with a Knowledge Exchange Event with Municipalities and local authorities from across Europe who were willing and eager to share views on the RiskPACC tools and solutions as well as best practices.
