How We Work

How We Work

See how the International Science Reserve works with the science community, members, government agencies, and others through the three-stages of crisis response.


Our 3 Step Process

Using a three-stage process (preparation, response, recovery), the International Science Reserve convenes, coordinates, prepares, and deploys scientific expertise to augment the capacity of the global community to respond to complex global crises.

1

Prepare

We mobilize the scientific community and engage in readiness exercises. Scenario planning enables us to simulate real-world crises, build our plans, and understand what is needed to manage a crisis effectively when it arises.

2

Respond

We apply our learnings and tackle the crisis. Scientists submit proposals to help mitigate the crisis at hand and the ISR connects them to resources to accelerate their work.

3

Recover

We remain engaged with the scientific community and monitor the crisis. We continue to share knowledge resulting from the accepted proposals.
