Since 2009, the German Red Cross (GRC) has been dealing with processes of social and technical change in a scientific context relevant to the tasks of the GRC in civil protection. On this website we present our research work at the interface to practice. Here you will find all information and materials on current and completed projects, our research publication series (free download) and other publications in the field of research in civil protection.
