This page allows you to view existing gaps and to find out which solutions could be addressing them. If you can't find the gap that you are looking for, you can define a new one: Add CM Gap.

Maak het eenvoudiger om CDM-oplossingen af te stemmen op capaciteitsbehoeften (DRIVER+)

  1. Maak het eenvoudiger om de capaciteitsbehoeften van de beoefenaars en de Gaps uit te drukken.
  2. Maak het eenvoudiger om  deze behoeften te begrijpen door de eigenaars van de oplossingen, zodat ze de innovatieve oplossingen die deze oplossen kunnen ontwikkelen en onder de aandacht brengen.
  3. Maak het eenvoudiger om de innovatieve oplossingen voor de -behoeften en Gaps te ontdekken.


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.


Adequate COP-omgeving (DRIVER+)

Gebrek aan een “Common Operational Picture” omgeving om gegevensbronnen en berekeningsresultaten uit verschillende modellen te integreren die cruciaal zijn voor  het besluitvormingsproces vanuit het gezichtspunt van de incidentcommandant.


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 , 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 of personnel for efficient emergency operations.


Grootschalige evacuatie in stedelijke gebieden (DRIVER+)

Tekortkomingen in de planning en het beheer van grootschalige evacuatie van de bevolking in stedelijke gebieden


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.


Bosbranden: klimaatverandering (DRMKC)

Begrijpen hoe toekomstige klimaatveranderingen invloed zullen hebben op bosbranden en bijbehorende uitstoot van broeikasgassen, in Europa en de rest van de wereld, is belangrijk om het aanpassings- en mitigatievermogen van de bossen te bepalen.


Bosbranden: brandecologie (DRMKC)

Begrijpen van de kwetsbaarheid van het ecosysteem en het potentieel om zich aan te passen aan dergelijke veranderingen kan helpen bij de ontwikkeling van proactieve strategieën voor en regeneratie na de brand.



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.
