The EGU General Assembly 2024 brings together geoscientists from all over the world to one meeting covering all disciplines of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences. The EGU aims to provide a forum where scientists, especially early career researchers, can present their work and discuss their ideas with experts in all fields of geoscience.
Some of our partners, CMCC, UNIGE and UNISA, are organising a short course entitled “SC4.10: Transdisciplinary research: how to learn from each other while fostering specific expertise” and a session entitled “Tools and challenges in assessing compounding and multi-hazard risk in the evolving technological landscape”.
Some of the questions that will be answered in the shirt course are:
- How to learn and get the key info when listening to the report of a colleague who works on something completely different from you but on the same project?
- How to deliver your report so that everyone understands you?
- How to find common ground for joint research which will impact both the project and your career?
This short course is created by and dedicated to Early Career Scientists. The main aim is to deliver simple but effective tools to use when working on a trans-disciplinary, cross-cultural project.
The session on multi-hazards instead will delve into the discussion of tools that support the preparedness in case of multi-hazard events such as open-source software, applications of cutting-edge AI and machine learning tools, risk assessment methods, and innovative tools to communicate risks i.e. serious games.

When theatre tackles the effects of climate extremes: the “science-art” approach to disaster risk reduction
Natural hazards claimed almost 60,000 lives in the first half of 2023 alone, and global warming is expected to trigger more extreme events in the coming years. “Breaking the silos” by combining theatre and science is one of the strategies being tested to prevent increasing losses and optimize disaster risk reduction.
