All Solutions page shows the overview of the "advertised" solutions that have been defined in the PoS. Soutions that aren't advertised by their owners (yet) are only listed on the user pages of their group members.
The primary function of the PoS is to document all the relevant available solutions of crisis management across Europe in such a way that different stakeholders can easily use this information. It should also propose a “marketplace” where Trial owners can discover relevant solutions for their Trials.
The PoS aims to provide a shared place where stakeholders meet around a solution. On the one hand, either practitioners (e.g. CM professionals) are looking for solutions that achieve CM Functions or they want to evaluate the adequacy of solutions and CM functions during a Trial. On the other hand, solution providers’ aim at developing their solution(s) based on tools and methods.
The PoS supports the following functions:
- Help users share their understanding of crisis management, e.g. through the use of a shared vocabulary and predefined taxonomies.
- Allow the description of solutions and Test-bed elements, and the relation between them. Solution providers will, through the PoS, be able to describe their element and to link it with CM functions and/or gaps.
