The second International Workshop on Innovation for Crisis Management (I4CM) took place on 8th and 9th December 2015 at the Fraunhofer-Forum Berlin. The workshop was part of a series of workshops organised in the framework of the DRIVER project. The first I4CM workshop was held in Marseille on 26 and 27th of May 2015.
The main objective of DRIVER I4CM workshops are to target local practitioners who have an interest in CM research and who possess indispensable operational knowledge to guide crisis management innovation. The I4CM initiative is complementary to the European Commission DG Home´s Community of Users (CoU), where I4CM results will be disseminated at EU level.
The 2nd I4CM workshop was co-hosted by the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Technological Trend Analysis (INT). The event was opened by Prof. Dr. Alfred Gossner, Member of the Executive Board of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, andAlbrecht Broemme, President of the THW. After the welcome speeches, an introduction to the DRIVER project was provided by project coordinator Fernando Kraus (ATOS).
