It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 6th International Civil Protection Conference, SafeCorfu 2019, which will be held from November 6 to 9, in Corfu City, Greece.
In collaboration with the Municipality of Corfu, the Ionian University and the Chamber of Corfu, the Region of Ionian Islands supports the annual SafeGreece initiative, which has become an institution, delivering new knowledge, experience and new practices to its constantly increasing audience.
Bringing together both international and national representatives from scientific and technological communities, local government and central administration, the private sector and Volunteer's organizations, we aim to:
- reinforce the interdependence and co-operation in Civil Protection, as required
- take advantage of all new technological achievements and adopt them in Civil Protection
- exchange experience, lessons learned and good practices.
- discuss about Civil Protection at any level.
We are looking forward to welcome you on the island of Corfu
After Rhodes 2014, Chania 2015, Alexandroupolis 2016, Athens 2017, and Kozani 2018 Corfu is keeping the traditional International character of the Conference.
