Unlocking the innovation potential in European crisis management in the era of climate change

The DRIVER+ Advanced Crisis Management Conference is the culmination of several years of trials, workshops and technology development to accelerate innovation in crisis management throughout Europe. Specialist speakers from leading organisations such as the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, WeRobotics and Prepared International, as well as other research organisations and EU institutions, will present on topics such as project outcomes, climate change, innovation in crisis management and community-building.

The event will provide a unique overview of how crisis management organisations can use the project's outputs to select and evaluate solutions - i.e. software, equipment, methods and approaches - addressing identified crisis management gaps on a thorough, methodological basis.

In a series of keynotes, plenaries and specialist demonstrations, participants will learn about the work of the DRIVER+ project teams:

Attendees will also have access at the conference to a solutions marketplace of technologies and tools tested at DRIVER+ Trials.
