All Risk Integrated System TOwards Trans-boundary hoListic Early-warning - European Natural Hazards Scientific Partnership
ARISTOTLE-ENHSP (also known as ARISTOTLE2 being the continuation of the previous ARISTOTLE 2016-2018) is a project financed by the EC DG-ECHO that delivers world leading multi-hazard advice capability to the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC).
ARISTOTLE-ENHSP has been designed to offer a flexible and scalable system that can provide new hazard-related services to the ERCC and to create a pool of experts in the field of Meteorology and Geophysics of Europe that can support the ERCC with regard to situation assessments in crisis situations.
The 24*7 services system is set up in a way that it builds up on and adds value to existing information systems and sources, and that it fully respects national and regional responsibilities.
As required, a multi-hazard scientific partnership and its governance will be created to ensure the holistic understanding of crisis management in natural disasters with interrelated consequences and cascade & linked effects, which may lead to an unforeseen chain of events.
Within ARISTOTLE-ENHSP, a collaborative network of scientific and operational experts has been established across Europe to exploit the available scientific and technological expertise and to assure mutual learning and improved coordination based on a multi-hazard approach, including the definition and implementation of the required prevention countermeasures, enhancing the information provided to the ERCC and, through the governance structure, ensuring a collaborative dialogue with the national mandated civil protection authorities.
