EPISECC presented at PSCE Conference in Oxford

Public Safety Communication Europe (PSCE) Forum held its 2nd conference of 2015 on 9-10 December, hosted by Cyber Security Oxford at The University of Oxford. In parallel, PSCE also organised a Horizon2020 brokerage event on Dec. 8th.

More than 80 delegates attended across the 3 days, representing public safety stakeholders consisting of public safety communication end users, ministries, network operators, technology developers and research organisations. Participants from 51 organisations travelled from 16 European countries to debate the future of public safety communications.

For the first time, PSCE invited project posters to be displayed during the two days conference. Posters were provided by several EU funded projects among which also the EPISECC.

Moreover, EPISECC project was discussed in the context of the presentation given by Monika BÜSCHER. Building on collaborative research with emergency management practitioners and technology developers, she explored ethical, legal and social dimensions of an ‘informationalization’ of Public Protetcion and Disaster Response (PPDR). The focus was on the ambiguities inherent in innovation and creative, responsible, synchronised efforts in policy, practice, technology and network development.
