Joint Workshop by the EPISECC & CONCORDE Projects

We are pleased to announce that EPISECC, jointly with the CONCORDE project, will be organizing a workshop on Optimizing Real Time Information Exchange in Emergency and Disaster Management to take place on 11 September 2017 in Brussels, Belgium.

As EPISECC is now coming to an end, this workshop will be the opportunity to present the projects’ results as well as reflect on the work that has been done in the course of the past three years.

EPISECC will present its conceptualization 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 also focused on the establishment of Interoperability at Physical (i.e. network) and Syntactical (i.e. automated information exchange) levels. The EPISECC proof of concept and a video will be presented to the audience.

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

Please be informed that this event occurs one day prior to DG HOME’s Community of User (CoU) meeting that will take place on 12-13-14 September at the same location.
