There are many different ways to develop theory addressing research problems on the global level. A list of research PhD themes will be compiled according to disaster trend trends in WB. HEIs Partners will make a theoretical base for a problem and the type of theory development methodology to utilize. A second element important to researchers, and particularly relevant for beginning researchers, is the concept of making a contribution to knowledge. HEIs Partners will define contribution that needs to be delivered through doctorates and give several methods how original research contributions can be made.
