Workshop

Co-Design Workshop II, Athens 10-11 September 2015

Where is SecInCoRe now?

SecInCoRe consists of two key elements: an inventory of past disaster events, data sets, ‘lessons learnt’, crisis management models and more and a Common Information Space concept that includes
new technological and organisational opportunities to contribute and retrieve information. This workshop did not focus on technology, but much has been done to implement and integrate software tools for SecInCoRe purposes. The challenge now is to make the proof of concept concrete with a prototype and experimental implementations. The Advisory Board experts, drawn from all over Europe and many organisations are not merely independent ‘evaluators’ of project results, but co-designers, central to this effort.

Experiment:

Co-Design Workshop I, Manchester 9-10 December 2014


Unity in Diversity

Bringing together response experts from seven different countries brought home how important it is to attend to similarities and differences in Emergency Response, Processes and Roles:

  • Data sets
  • Information Systems
  • Business Models
  • Ethical, Legal and Societal Frameworks for Emergency Service provision
  • Languages!

Even if standardisation progresses, diversity will remain an integral feature in practice, especially when transnational collaboration is needed.

Objectives

In this Workshop, the main objectives were Understand, Envision, Experiment and Collaborate:

Understand:

Current practices of emergency responders of various roles.

Envision:

technological potential and its relation to practice

Experiment:

with new ways of working that integrate new technologies

Collaborate:

professional experts, social scientists and engineers
