CMI is participating in a research project, which aims to experiment with and demonstrate a concept and methodology for a testbed to be used for developing a Europe-wide crisis management system. This system is capable of supporting a coordinated response to large-scale incidents and disasters both inside and outside the EU.
The Aftermath Crisis Management System-of-systems Demonstration (ACRIMAS) is a scenario-based and user-centric Research & Development project. It is conducted by a consortium comprised of fifteen organizations ranging from NGOs to think tanks and private sector actors to governmental research institutions. These entities come from various European countries. The ultimate object of the project is to enable a gradual evolvement of crisis management (CM) capabilities, procedures, technologies, policies and standards. This will be carried out through real field tests, facilitating European-wide collaboration, cooperation and communication in CM and improving cross-fertilization between MS organizations.
CMI is participating in the CM framework and policy analysis as well as task and mission analysis from the EU CSDP civilian missions´ point of view. Moreover, CMI contributes to CM capability and gap analysis as well as awareness-raising and dissemination tasks.
