COBACORE at ESRDublin2015

COBACORE Technical Coordinator, Martijn Neef presented at a European security conference which took place in Dublin on 4th – 6th November.

‘European Security Research – The Next Wave’ was organised by the NSAI and featured presentations and workshops by policy makers, crisis and emergency management, first responders and the research community. Several other European projects were represented at the event, including S-HELP, DESTRIERO, AQUASMART, SECTOR and CRISP.

Strengthening Crisis and Emergency Management Response: What EU Results are Emerging was the first of four main conference themes, and included Martijn’s presentation. He gave an overview of COBACORE – the concept behind the project, and the progress to date. This was followed by S-HELP Coordinator Karen Neville’s presentation on her project, which is developing a decision support system for emergency management.

The other conference themes were on the topics Crisis Management Standardisation, Cyber Security and Big Data where the private sector, research and scientific communities were represented by a diverse group of presenters.

Day two and three involved workshops and world café sessions, giving further opportunities to network and explore collaboration opportunities with other projects.
