Event description

Description

Join TGD for an interesting and interactive event on the dynamics of post-Disaster recovery.

The event will take place in the Trappenzaal in the Vertigo building on the TU/e campus in Eindhoven.


Based on 6 case-studies of Haiti, Pakistan, Philippines, Brazil, Nepal and Ecuador, you will be able to hear at firsthand the experiences and challenges of researchers involved in these processes in short lectures of 30 minutes. After a free lunch, transform yourself in a researcher for disaster relief and contribute with your ideas in interactive workshops.

End your afternoon in our company with a social drink.
