Red Cross Red Crescent Movement
Our main partners are National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), as well as the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and several of its reference centres such as the Climate Centre, the Anticipation Hub or the Cash Hub. Our main goal is to support those members of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement around the world whose aid workers and decision makers help people before, during and after a disaster or crisis occurs through data and digital solutions.
We are grateful to receive funding from, and partner with, international organisations, the European Union, and various governments to advance our projects and expand our reach to help communities affected by disasters in our auxiliary role as a Red Cross Red Crescent actor.

At 510, we are engaged in partnerships with several research institutions and universities by working with students who apply the latest scientific advances to our projects during their graduate research work or internship with us. The scoping of research topics is an interactive process among different stakeholders. 510’s thematic leads play a key role in defining the research priorities for their themes, largely based on the needs of the National Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies we partner with, as well as ongoing project objectives. In November 2023, our Academic Lead Marc van den Homberg took on the role as Professor on the Princess Margriet Chair “Data for disaster resilience” at the University of Twente’s ITC/Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation, where he focuses on enhancing the quality of risk and impact data, trigger models for anticipatory action, and selecting, monitoring, and building evidence for nature-based solutions.
