The DisComPoSE research group participates in the international APURIS project: Las administraciones públicas y los regios naturales en las monarquías borbónicas (siglos XVII-XIX), which brings together researchers belonging to three research groups working on the response of public institutions to environmental disasters in Spain, southern Italy and in Spanish America between the age of enlightened reformism and the European Restoration.
The project is based on the Casa de Velázquez (Madrid) and it is coordinated by Armando Alberola Romá (Universidad de Alicante), Domenico Cecere (University of Naples Federico II), Jean-Philippe Luis (MSH / Université Clermont-Auvergne)

The DisComPoSE research project is connected to the Red Columnaria, an international scholarly network based at the University of Murcia, that brings together American and European historians who work on the Iberian Monarchies.

The DisComPoSE research project is connected to the Cambridge Disaster Research Network (CDRN), a multidisciplinary network of researchers on disaster studies of the University of Cambridge, which aims at promoting dialogue between natural sciences and socio-humanistic disciplines in the development of strategies for the prevention and reduction of damage produced by disasters.

The DisComPoSE project participates in the Spanish reseach project I+D Res-Pública Monárquica. La Monarquía Hispánica, una estructura imperial policéntrica de repúblicas urbanas (PGC 2018-095424-B-100), directed by Manuel Herrero Sánchez (Pablo de Olavide University, Seville). The project moves away from traditional interpretations of the Hispanic Monarchy based on binary parameters (center-periphery; king-local elites; court councils-local administrations) to the study of the imperial system through a bottom-up approach that takes into account the interactions between the global and the local and the plurality of agents and jurisdictions (kingdoms, corporations, cities, manors) with which the sovereign and the institutions of the Crown had to negotiate and interact for the proper functioning of the Monarchy.
