Thursday, August 03, 2017 | Comments

Europe’s CONCORDE and EPISECC projects are organizing a joint workshop on optimizing real-time information exchange in emergency and disaster management 11 September in Brussels, Belgium. Both projects are now coming to an end, and the workshop will present the projects’ results as well as reflect on the work that has been done during the past three years.

The EPISECC project will present its concept of a Common European Information Space (CIS) as a key element in a future integrated pan-European crisis and disaster response capacity. EPISECC worked to develop a common taxonomy and an ontology model aimed at addressing the semantic interoperability issue and focused on establishing interoperability at physical and syntactical levels. The EPISECC proof of concept and a video will be presented to the audience.

The CONCORDE project will present the platform it developed to support and enhance the existing decision processes during medical emergencies at local, regional and cross-border levels, from small incidents to large-scale emergency situations. The platform will be demonstrated and show how CONCORDE has the potential to improve the operational information flow within EMS, as well as the communications and coordination between people requiring emergency medical help, the responders and a resilient community. The technical innovations brought by the CONCORDE project and a video of a pilot session will be presented.

The event will gather a range of stakeholders including experts from the public-safety and medical emergency domains, researchers, actors from the industry and members of the European Commission.
