Warnings save countless lives every year, can be used to support day-to-day living and vulnerability reduction, and are often operated by government organisations with legal remits.
The UCL Warning Research Centre was established at UCL to bring together experts from across UCL and globally to provide the very best and latest research on warnings, making it the only such dedicated facility in the world focusing on:
- designing, implementing, and maintaining effective warnings.
- understanding what makes warnings successful or fail.
- working across a wide range of hazards and threats to develop MHEWS.
- integrating people and society into warnings, whilst also integrating technological advancements.
Associate Warning Groups:
