Objective

FORMIDABLE's main objective is to propose a European Standard Methodology for Natural Hazards Management based on the consensus of major Mediterranean Civil Protections, and to develop an interoperable support system prototype which integrates the resulting guidelines. The project consortium includes partners from Mediterranean industries (developers, integrators, service company), research and educational institutes, and customer organisations in charge of operational emergency management in their respective countries. The resulting system will represent the standardised access to data and knowledge required to manage natural risks, with all means to access, maintain and exchange information for natural hazards, in particular those with a fast evolution time typical of the Mediterranean countries.
FORMIDABLE aims to address the general lack of co-ordination and poorly unified approach to emergency management scenarios, as highlighted in : a critical analysis of major problems and failures encountered by emergency management operations. Often actions have been planned and executed with a limited perspective on the true scale of events and the responsibilities involved. Although the repetition of an event can be regarded as a constant factor, damage extent and type of intervention required are variable. For this reason the Emergency Management methodology should will include flexibility and simplicity to ensure efficient intervention and immediate relief to affected citizens.

Milestones:
Milestone 1: T0 + 8 months: Methodology Review;
Milestone 2: T0 + 10 months: System Design;
Milestone 3: T0 + 24 months: Prototype integration;
Milestone 4: T0 + 28 months: Field trials - Italy / Field trials - Spain;
Milestone 5: T0 + 30 months: End of Project

Result 1) Establishment of a European Standard Methodology for Emergency Management;
Result 2) Development of a system prototype able to make the resulting methodology operational, easily accessed and controlled.
