The DRIVER+ Advanced Crisis Management Conference was held in Brussels 18 – 20 February, bringing together more than 300 crisis management specialists, policy-makers, academics and technology developers from throughout Europe and beyond.

Different initiatives were also undertaken to accelerate innovation in crisis management throughout Europe, in particular in connection with climate change-related events such as wildfires and flooding. In this manner, the project has led to the establishment of a network of centers of expertise to promote crisis management capability development and innovation. Furthermore, it has set up a pan-European platform, the Crisis Management Innovation Network Europe (CMINE), to foster knowledge sharing and cooperation.

The centers of expertise will ensure the sustainability of project outputs with seven institutions signing letters of agreement at the conference. The centers include Entente Valabre (France), the Main School of Fire Service (SGSP, Poland), L3CE (Lithuania), the Resilience Advisors Network (RAN, Ireland), SRC-PAS (Poland), the Estonian Academy of Security Sciences (EASS) and the Austrian Red Cross (ARC).
