- Target participants: CI operators, accidents & risks analysts, civil protection, fire fighters, public authorities in charge of managing crises etc.

This second PREDICT expert workshop will be focused on better understanding how the incident evolution can be observed, predicted and communicated at the prevention and response levels. Indeed, predicting and addressing potential cascading effects in crisis situation requires a comprehensive view of the evolution and a better understanding of the key phases of a crisis. By taking stock of existing solutions and exploring innovative methods in this field, end-users will be able to exchange best practices and express operational requirements on incident evolution solutions designed to improve their capability to mitigate potential cascading effects and thus facilitate their daily work.
The results of this workshop will be used to support the specification of a generic methodology for understanding incident evolution developed during the PREDICT project.
Reimbursement of transportation and accommodation costs
Experts taking part in the workshop are invited by the PREDICT project team. The PREDICT project will reimburse the traveling and accommodation costs up to €400 per participant upon receipt. Due to budgetary constraints we kindly ask you to respect this limit for travel expenses.
For more details, please find attached the tentative agenda of the workshop.
PREDICT is a European research project (FP7) co-funded by the European Commission. Its objective is to provide a comprehensive solution for dealing with cascading effects in multi-sectoral crisis situations covering aspects of critical infrastructures.
The PREDICT project develops methodologies, models and tools that aim at increasing the understanding of cascading effects by crisis management organisations, and to support them in their response capability. The tools developed within the PREDICT project will be tested with end-users during three exercises.
