Report on CRISMA Final Results, presenting the project and its outcomes,
released in June 2015
The CRISMA consortium has recently issued a new publication that not only
outlines the aims and objectives of the project, but also explains the CRISMA
pilot scenarios, the technological aspects of the project and how the CRISMA
solutions can be applied in reality.
Many CRISMA consortium partners have been busy preparing the publication.
An extensive list of all authors and contributors can be found in the Report on CRISMA Final Results.
Project coordinator Anna-Mari Heikkilä (VTT), Denis Havlik (AIT), and Sascha
Schlobinski (Cismet) can be highlighted as the editors of the publication.
The Report on CRISMA Final Results presents an overview of the solutions developed within CRISMA that
aim to support crisis managers and decision-makers dealing with complex crisis
scenarios. CRISMA aims to improve preparedness and resilience to crisis events by
facilitating the manipulation and visualisation of complex crisis scenarios, which
typically have multiple effects on society and require the integration of expertise
from multiple sectors, and involve financial and ethical concerns.
The publication is divided in two main sections. The first provides an introduction
to the project for decision makers and technical managers. The second part explores
the technical aspects of CRISMA. The Report on CRISMA Final Results introduces the CRISMA pilots and
provides a more in-depth analysis of the CRISMA concept, that is, the decision
support mechanism for crisis management, and also explains in detail the way the
CRISMA tool and mechanism can be applied in reality.
The CRISMA solutions can be used to address a large range of challenges encountered
in the crisis management preparedness phase, namely (1) regional, land-use and
infrastructure planning on a long-term basis, (2) contingency planning, (3)
optimisation of the operative crisis management plans, and (4) support for the
preparation, execution and assessment of the results of the desktop and field exercises.
