From Wednesday 3 to Friday 5 June, the European Commission Representation in Ireland will host a meeting of the COBACORE project (COmmunity BAsed Comprehensive Recovery)
COBACORE is a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission involving Dutch, UK, German, Irish, Spanish and Slovakian partners. COBACORE seeks to close the collaboration gaps between stakeholders involved in post-crisis recovery. COBACORE also aims to improve the matching of needs with capacities, through building upon the community as an important source of information and capabilities. The COBACORE suite of tools, which are designed to complement existing practices and tools, will support common needs assessments efforts, damage recovery needs, economic needs, health and social needs, and other critical humanitarian needs. The COBACORE assets will stimulate community-wide involvement in information gathering, sense-making, and needs assessment practices.
The project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 313308.
