Registering the descriptive information (metadata) illustrating the circumstances of the observed exercise events (e.g. time, place, etc.), for future evaluation (INEGMA-E²)

To collect as much as possible information (metadata) describing the circumstances of the . This approach is in accordance with commonly used the evidence-based methodology, helping to draw more credible conclusions. The excessive registered information may be omitted during analysis, but unregistered information cannot be easily retrieved.

Clear objectives for the exercise (INEGMA-E²)

Without clearly defined objectives it’s impossible to measure if the was successful or not. They are necessary to give value to an .

Cross-agency decision support tools (STAMINA)

management in the recent COVID-19 pandemics has been impeded by lack of coherence between decision making in different agencies and at different levels.

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.

Resource management during long-term response operations (DRIVER+)

Insufficiencies in terms of resource management (human resources, hardware, etc.) during multi-stakeholder long-term operations.

Real-time data and information fusion to support incident commander decision-making (DRIVER+)

Limits in the ability to merge and synthesise disparate data sources and models in real time (historic events, spreading models, tactical situation, critical assets map, etc) to support incident commander decision making.

Strategic

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.
