Several higher education institutes from all parts of Switzerland were involved in the realization of this Internet course platform presenting a total of 87 learning units available online at NAHRIS is primarily targeted at university students at the bachelor of science level. The main novelty of NAHRIS lies in the holistic examination of the natural hazard and risk management domain including technical, environmental and social aspects. Therefore, it enjoys growing popularity among researchers and practitioners employed in these working areas. (Contains 6 tables and 4 figures.)
