Over the next three years, IN-PREP’s research and technological development will address the growing challenges being faced across Europe to manage the response to large-scale, cross-border disasters and to coordinate resources between various European countries. The project focuses on three urgent aspects:
Partners work very closely with practitioners: civil protection agencies represent 35% of the consortium. In addition, many activities will engage external agencies in order to validate the approach developed. Guided by the end-user feedback on the real-world challenges, partners will establish and demonstrate a next generation programme – A Mixed Reality Preparedness Platform — that integrates Command & Control and Information Systems responding to different scenarios paired with Situational Awareness modules and Decision Support mechanisms. IN-PREP will pair this with a Cross-Organisational Handbook of Transboundary Preparedness and Response Operations from which organisations can build a framework for coordination.
Within the project, Trilateral manages the Social, Ethics & Legal Panel as well as Security Scrutiny Board. We use this role to build a responsible research ethic from the start and to mitigate risks that might arise throughout the research process. Trilateral will also design and conduct the ethical, privacy, legal impact assessment throughout the project, ensuring the project establishes a strong framework for responsible design and use.
