Open Data for Resilience Initiative will see you at Understanding Risk 2016!

The OpenDRI team is super excited about UR2016 in Venice!  As always, the schedule is jam packed full of interesting and innovative sessions that we can’t wait to participate in and learn from. The themes of open data, community participation in risk assessment, and improving risk communications are all hot topics at this event. We’re excited to see this ideas continue to gain traction in the Understanding Risk Community.
