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.
Forest fires: fire spatial and temporal patterns (DRMKC)
Management actions and deployment of resources to deter fires are based on where and how fires occur. Understanding what makes an area to be particularly prone to burn or not is not only important for conserving its values and resources but also for preventing that future management actions, particularly in areas were fires accumulate, do not result in increased vulnerability to wildfires.
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.
Modelling and visualization of threats' dynamics (DRIVER+)
Limitations in the ability to model real-time ( phase) or pre-event ( phase) dynamics of various threats and visualization of obtained results in a form that can be used directly by the incident commander.
Adequate communication technology for crisis management (STAMINA)
Recent COVID-19 has demonstrated that EU states have so far failed to endorse a solid pandemics/epidemics communication methodology, develop clear guidelines and enforce use of these guidelines in crisis situations.
As a result, the communication was often haphazard, with different organizations and authorities occasionally disagreeing in their assessments of the situation and recommendations.
Contact tracing and backtracing (STAMINA)
Contact tracing (also known as partner notification) is a primary means of controlling infectious diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Contact tracing has also played an important role in controlling the COVID-19 spread. Backtracing is similar to contact tracing, but concentrates on tracing back the movements of infected persons. Similar functionality may be required in other types of , e.g.
Tools to gather and analyze the gathered information (INEGMA-E²)
The evaluator has to gather a lot of information, later analyse it and produce (first impression) reports, which is a difficult task that could be made easier by using modern tools such as applications on a phone or a tablet.
Evaluation of Project Management During the Project Cycle of the Exercise (INEGMA-E²)
The of an EU-funded civil protection is not limited to the of the itself but regularly also to the entire project cycle. This includes the formative evaluation of the phases of exercise planning and exercise preparation in order to be able to identify fields of improvement already in an early phase of the project.
Possibility of access to the entire information exchange (INEGMA-E²)
For proper on has to understand what is going on and be able to follow the process (and changes of the processes) -> e.g. critical points in pathways (why is this and this – not – happening > because something was being brought into perspective)
Fully understanding of the evaluators role for the participants (INEGMA-E²)
Sometimes evaluators are perceived as a kind of an "enemy" (might be a strogn word), as they are looking on what participants are doing = stressfull, feeling of being controlled, being observed. It needs to be understood, that the role is not to judge/classify the participants, but to contribute to the improvement.
It is a lot about transparency! If it is clear: methodology to evaluate the teams. It cannot be assumed that every team understands the methodology. If there is a common way to evaluate exercises, it becomes more clear. A kind of standard- .
Considering evaluators in logistic preparation (AIT Austrian Institute of Technology GmbH.)
The personal needs of participants must be taken into consideration when planning the conduction of an . But also the evaluators’ personal needs must not be overlooked.
