European Dynamics SA presented TACTIC at the EU Project Symposium held as part of the 12th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM 2015). The symposium took place at Kristiansand, Norway on the 27th May and brought together representatives from 19 European projects.
We presented our aim to increase preparedness for large-scale and cross-border disasters amongst communities and societies in Europe. Moreover, we showed the first results of our collaborative strategy on risk perception and preparedness, which involved selected user and stakeholder groups at four workshops already conducted and also included our online platform.
In addition to the presentations, we had the opportunity to establish contact and share information with other projects during the speed networking session. An interesting finding is that there is a number of other similar projects, such as SecInCoRe and SECTOR, which also aim to populate an inventory of existing good practices in community preparedness for various disasters.
