Collaborate, share and exchange: the DRIVER Community Platform

Collaborate, share and exchange: the DRIVER Community Platform

Early 2016, more than 250 experts from the fields of civil protection, security, technology, police, environment, health, defence and standardisation (to name a few) expressed their interest in the DRIVER project by subscribing to the DRIVER community database available via the public website.

As a simple database seemed to be rather limited in terms of exchange possibilities, collaborative thinking and knowledge sharing, the DRIVER partners are currently developing a sustainable tool, so-called the DRIVER Community Platform (DCP), to go a step further and provide all crisis management stakeholders with a dedicated forum to network and exchange. The DCP will take the form of a type of social network exclusively dedicated to crisis management, where all stakeholders can connect, discuss and collaborate to find new approaches and solutions to crisis management issues.

It is expected that ultimately the DCP will bring together thousands of contacts and their expertise, all in multiple interactions. The DRIVER Community will help the DRIVER project deliver an effective and sustainable impact that will far outlive the DRIVER project itself.

The DCP is currently tested by the DRIVER consortium partners before its official release, but if you are a crisis management practitioner, policy maker, technology supplier, or simply a citizen interested in crisis management, stay tuned on the DRIVER website: the access link to the DCP will soon be made available! Or register now to the DRIVER community database so that you will automatically become a member of the DRIVER Community Platform.
