Faciliate matching of CDM solutions to capability needs (DRIVER+)
- Faciliate expressing the practitioners needs and Gaps.
- Faciliate the understanding of these needs by owners, so that they can develop and advertise the innovative Solutions resolving them.
- Faciliate discovering of the innovative Solutions addressing the needs and Gaps.
Adequate COP environment (DRIVER+)
Lack of a “Common Operational Picture” environment to integrate data sources and calculation results from different models that are crucial for decision making process from the perspective of the incident commander.
Incorporating information from multiple sources into incident command operations (IFAFRI)
The Ability to Incorporate Information from Multiple and Nontraditional Sources into Incident Command Operations
Secure cross-agency documentation, sharing and tracking (STAMINA)
Efficient and secure sharing of the data necessary for decision making has proven to be challenging in the recent COVID-19 .
Adequate collaboration and communication guidelines and methodology (STAMINA)
management is a collective effort encompassing various organisations that to work seamlessly together across domain and administrative borders.
Monitor and counter mis- and disinformation (STAMINA)
Mis- and disinformation can have adverse effects on management and even cause cascading (e.g. civil disobedience and even insurrections)
Adequate Crisis Management legislation (STAMINA)
Provide a sound legal basis for various aspects of Management in all parts of the CM cycle.
Use of virtual reality to enhance preparedness for large scale evacuation (DRIVER+)
Shortcomings in the use of virtual reality to enhance of first responders in case of large scale evacuation, as a support for and .
Backtracking of potentially infected persons (Johanniter Austria)
If a patient is identified as infectious after he/she was transported by the ambulance, we have to backtrace all contact persons of the ambulance car team and test them, as the car is not disinfected after each transport.
COLLECTION OF PARTICIPANT FEEDBACK (INEGMA-E²)
In order to have a complete understanding of the way that the manages to create an environment in which the participants reach their objectives, it is necessary to gather their feedback.
Data management: Data collection, data analysis and reporting (INEGMA-E²)
Data managment runs almost throughout the whole
cycle, from preparation, to conduct, analysis and reporting, even if evaluators are not heavily involved during the planning phase. It is useful to provide some guidance to evaluators for the content of data collection, usually this is developed in two pillars:
of players performance and
conduct. There are different methods for data collection: through evaluators input, feedback from participants, recording, possibly input from observers, interviews, debriefs. To decide if and how to use observers for data collection, exercise managers may decide differently based on who the observers are. Info from observers may support evaluators, depending on the design of the exercise.
Mainly raw data, not information, that is available.
Making and registering the observations as soon as possible (in time and place) (INEGMA-E²)
Registering as many as possible facts in real time, possibly in field (FSX,TTX), improves the impartiality of collected observations due to avoiding opportunity for interpretation from the observers’ sides. Moreover, it helps to distribute collection activities in both phases: during and after the , providing logistical advantage. Lastly, the observations are available in the database earlier, giving the opportunity to be used for introducing the corrections after each stage of the , so the information use also for exercise conducting purposes.
