CEDIM Mission

The Center for Disaster Management and Risk Reduction Technology (CEDIM) is an interdisciplinary research center of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in the field of disaster management. The main goal of CEDIM is to advance our scientific understanding of natural and man-made hazards, and to develop disaster management solutions for the early detection and reduction of the related risks.

CEDIM is dedicated to developing technologies and tools in the areas of risk assessment, risk communication and management in a world with increasing population, rapid urbanization and the growing threat associated with climate change. To achieve this, CEDIM employs interdisciplinary competence and synergies between its affiliated institutions and cooperates with emergency management at international, national, state and community levels.
