As the science and knowledge service of the European Commission, the Joint Research Centre's mission is to support EU policies with independent evidence throughout the whole policy cycle.
The World Landslide Forum 3 will be held in Beijing, China, June 2-6, 2014. It is jointly sponsored by Ministry of Land and Resources, the People's Republic of China (MLR, PRC) and the Global Promotion Committee of the International Programme on Landslides (IPL), organised by the International Consortium on Landslides (ICL) and China Geological Survey (CGS).
The World Landslide Forum will bring together government officials, scholars, international research and development communities, NGO representatives and numerous segments of the private industries to present their latest results on geo-hazard mitigation, especially, on landslide reduction and to exchange ideas on how to improve geo-environment safety around the world.
It will also become a phenomenal event for geo-hazard prevention because of its unique opportunity for professionals from all over the world to learn from each other on geo-hazard mitigation.
The International Consortium on Landslides will concomitantly hold a meeting of its Board of Representatives. As a member of the Board of the ICL and of the Forum Programme Committee, IES scientist Javier Hervás will attend both events on behalf of the JRC.
