Traditional surveillance gives information only on a limited part of the impact caused by a pandemic, mainly from the health care sector since that is from where data is recorded and reported. This information needs to be complemented with information on the impact the pandemic causes also in other sectors of society. These sectors are for instance workplaces and schools. With this information, policy makers on different levels will be better guided to make informed decisions on policies on what countermeasures to implement.


Environnement adéquat de COP (DRIVER+)

Manque d'un environnement d'« image opérationnelle commune » pour intégrer les sources de données et résultats de calculs des différents modèles qui sont essentiels au  processus de prise de décision de la perspective du commandant de l'intervention.


Traditional visualizations used in the public health domain mainly include simple graph-based or map-based visualizations. With the data deluge taking place, the use of such simple visualization techniques is proving ineffective as they essentially lack the ability to deal with enormous data. Understanding massive amounts of disparate, dynamic data from heterogeneous sources calls for advanced visualization techniques that may incorporate automated methods of data analysis as well as human perception. In addition, there is a lack of a common visualization and data presentation tool, or a (pandemic) dashboard, at EU level that could be used by all Member States during a high impact epidemic or pandemic.

Forest fires: Preparedness (DRMKC)

The preparedness of agencies and communities to deal with forest fires requires an adequate evaluation of fire risk and its timely communication, reliable early-warning systems, as well as the training of personnel for efficient emergency operations.


Évacuation à grande échelles dans des zones urbaines (DRIVER+)

Lacunes de planification et de gestion d'évacuation à grande échelle de population dans des zones urbaines


Many countries now have plans in place, which include measures such as rationing of resources, enforced isolation or quarantine, or seizure of goods and property. However, many of the national plans are not supported by national laws. This inadequate legal underpinning can lead to an incoherent response across Member States and some current legislation may be outdated and/or in breach of the European Convention on Human Rights.


Integrated Fire Management (DRMKC)

Forest fire is a natural hazard that becomes semi-natural as far as most fire incidences are caused by human activities, in Europe and elsewhere. Forest fires are complex phenomena involving land use and related policies such as the EU CAP, urban planning in the vicinity of forests, climate and weather conditions, and human activities, cultural traditions. Therefore, the problem has multiple interacting drivers and aspects, beyond just considering ignitions and firefighting issues.


Feux de forêts : changement climatique (DRMKC)

Il est important de comprendre comment les changements futurs affecteront les feux de forêts et les émissions de gaz à effet de serre en découlant, en Europe et à l'échelle mondiale, pour déterminer le potentiel d'adaptation et d' des forêts.


Feux de forêt : écologie du feu (DRMKC)

Comprendre la vulnérabilité et le potentiel des écosystèmes à s'adapter à de tels changements peuvent aider à développer des stratégies de proactive et de régénération post-incendie.



Public trust in governmental and public health institutions is critical for effective management of a public health emergency. Measures to prepare and respond to a pandemic need the support, cooperation and understanding of the public. Where there is a lack of trust, the public may act in ways which are unhelpful, or even harmful. They may also panic. While important, understanding what creates and drives “trust” is difficult because it is a complex concept which is difficult to measure or control. This makes it challenging to take appropriate measures to respond to a loss of trust.
