8-24 September 2020 Being members of the project team, we kindly invite you to participate in the DAREnet Online Workshop Cycle. The DAREnet project aims at strenghtening flood resilience in the entire Danube river region. For this purpose, the practitioners’ view on needs and innovations is essential. In order to collect this knowledge and allow for collaborative work, DAREnet invites groups of people from different domains and disciplines, organisations and countries to join this webinar on “equipment” in flood response and management. The first webinar will focus on Hygienic Measures in the Context of Floods and will be held on 8th September 1.00-3.00PM. For more information and registration please visit https://www.cmine.eu/events/40434. The CMINE website provides information about other webimars organised by DAREnet project that will focus on Securing Evacuated Areas, Social Media Handling, Levee Defence, Levee Control and Flood Protection Measures, Water Rescue and Boat Operation.
A computer platform for crisis management training.
What is PROCeed?
PROCeed is a computer system designed for preparing for making decisions in simulated situations. It allows to create and run various types of simulation applications, both for the purposes of training in the form of interactive decision games, as well as a toolkit for multi-variant analysis. The use of simulation techniques enables realistic representation of the real course of a selected critical situation, by taking into account all necessary roles, decisions, phenomena, physical objects or elements of environment. By observing the dynamically changing simulated situation, the system user is able to make various decisions affecting its further course and the behaviour of other users.
Many possibilities for self-development
How do we absorb knowledge?
The degree of detail of the simulated situation, the methods of its visualization and the scope of user interaction are determined by appropriate models, prepared individually for each simulation application. These models may be based on simple, predefined dependencies, as well as may contain complicated mathematical and physical transformations faithfully reflecting the dynamics of selected phenomena (e.g. flood, fire). Thanks to the versatility and flexibility of the PROCeed system, it is possible to prepare and use any detailed models, any chosen fragment of reality, as well as to adjust the methods of presenting the state of the situation to specific user requirements.
What's new in PROCeed?
COVID-19 has accelerated implementation of digital technologies to support containment of the pandemic. It is in the public interest to allow emergency exceptions for data collection and processing. However, this should not be at the cost of individual freedoms and civil liberties that underpin the functioning of democracy. And, to become effective, many of the technologies require public trust and the trust of emergency practitioners. This webinar explores how to support innovation that is ambitious and sensitive with a view to digital ethics. The event will take place on 23 June at 11am CEST. Agenda and registration here.
Five pan-European networks of security practitioners jointly invite to the live webinar and will present top keynote speakers with different backgrounds, providing insights and first-hand experience obtained during real disaster events. Participation is free and open to practitioners, researchers and other interested professionals from different disciplines. To receive your personal invitation, please register using the link below.
