The German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis INT are pleased to co-host this interactive regional workshop as a part of the current dialogue on innovation in crisis management..
Georgios Kolliarakis from SecurePART, besides briefing on the state-of-play of the project, took part at the final Roundtable dicussion about "How to better link national requirements and European reserach to ensure operational uptake?". Georgios argued that in order
to make the impact of security research more relevant to the needs of security providers on the ground, research actions should involve in the future more civil society organisations, many of which are themselves first responders and aid providers with limited operational capacities, and have therefore a direct link to citizens' concerns.
