Press/Media: Research


Experts from the University of Salford are at the head of a new academic network funded by the European Union to improve disaster preparedness in cities worldwide. The project, called ANDROID (Academic Network for Disaster Resilience to Optimise Educational Development), aims to promote cooperation and innovation among European higher education institutions to increase society’s resilience to disasters of human and natural origin – such as earthquakes or the damage caused by ongoing wars.

ANDROID, worth nearly €800,000, will run for three years and is led by Professor Dilanthi Amaratunga, Head of the University’s Centre for Disaster Resilience, and Dr Richard Haigh, a senior lecturer.
