Critical Response in Security and Safety Emergencies


The EU regularly suffers from natural and man-made disaster, the social and economical consequences of which may adversely affect its growth and competitiveness. There is a growing vulnerability to disasters and subsequently an urgent need to improve operational capacities and capabilities of Member States. Furthermore, the Lisbon Treaty will enlarge the role of the EU and allow for stronger coordinated activities to support crisis management (CM) outside the EU.
CRISYS aims at developing a strategic roadmap for full implementation of an integrated and scalable crisis management system and to provide a solid basis for the description of a full user driven demo programme. Uniquely CRISYS engages users and suppliers in pursuit of practical outcomes that can be rapidly transferred into the operational environment. CRISYS will seek to capitalise on relevant projects in the domain, whilst forging solid networks and wide awareness with significant users, first responders, governments, suppliers and other bodies in the field of CM.
CRISYS will:
-Identify and analyse the state of the art in the current legacy environment of CM across the EU (policies, systems, societal)
-Gather information from users with regard to their requirements on operational, procedural, regulatory, technological and standards issues
-Place emphasis on the protection of the citizens by engaging and developing close contact with local and national administrations responsible for CM and with first responder organisations
-Assess capacity and competency gaps in current and foreseen performance to recommend validated demonstration cases regarding user’s requirements
-Propose a strategic roadmap for the Phase2. This roadmap will be set in the context of current and future relevant factual and political trends, as well as economic and supply market issues
-Ensure EU wide dissemination of information with these activities being supported by an enlarged User platform and other key EU and international stakeholders
