Academic council

The strategic guidelines of the center are defined by the Academic Council, formed by the director of the center and eight principal researchers, whose purpose is to ensure the development of knowledge that contributes to minimizing the impact that extreme natural events have on people, structures, territory and society in general. At the same time, they strengthen the country’s resilience to threats of natural origin and make Chile a leader in disaster research.
