PREVIEW proposes to develop, at the European scale, new or enhanced information services for risk the management in support of Civil Protection Units and local or regional authorities, making the best use of the most advanced research and technology outcomes in Earth Observation. Services will be validated under pre-operational conditions.
The risks may result from the direct impact of atmospheric events, from their hydrological consequences or from geophysical events and in some cases be worsened or directly caused by industrial activities. The challenging issue is to enhance risk mitigation through better prevention, better anticipation and more accurate assessment at various time and spatial scales of situations at risk, improved timely dissemination of meaningful and adapted early warning information, fitted to the societal needs and to the operations of rescue forces. This has to be done in a joint effort of all actors and citizens to develop risk awareness and culture.
The main axe of development through PREVIEW is: Improvement of the services contents: quality and harmonisation of the information services supporting the decision making at the operational level, improving information collection, aggregation and intelligence methodologies, developing synergies, cooperative work and inter-operability capacities among operators for a widespread application of the best solutions at national, regional, and European scale.
