The 5th European Civil protection Forum will take place on 6-7 May 2015, in Brussels.

It will feature a two-day conference and an indoor and outdoor exhibition, all under the central theme of “Partnership and Innovation”.

The Partnership theme will include our traditional partners such as representatives of the European and UN institutions and authorities from around the world (i.e. civil protection and emergency response organisations in the EU Member States, the USA Federal Emergency Management Agency, Japan, Association of Southeast Asian Nations – ASEAN, European Neighbourhood countries), but also new partners, such as private companies, NGOs, academia, scientific institutes, European cities and regions, etc.

The Innovation theme will focus on new technologies (e.g. unmanned aerial systems, social media, security, smart cities), as well as the links with research and development, and innovative ways of engaging with communities and various organisations.
