Center for Security, Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness

Welcome to the Center for Security, Crisis Management and Emergency Preparedness (SKB). Our purpose is to develop research-based knowledge about security, crisis management and emergency preparedness management.

We are a meeting place for practitioners and researchers from different disciplines and collaborate on research and development projects.

We emphasise both user-driven research and basic research. As a result, all actors using the Center’s expertise will be ensured quality-assessed solutions at a high internationally recognised scientific level.

This is essential when solutions are to be used in preparedness and emergency situations.
