What are the I4CM events?
The Innovation for Crisis Management (I4CM) events aim to contribute to building a shared understanding in Crisis Management through the organisation of an annual event focusing on Crisis Management topics, allowing to address issues of common interest, to develop synergies between initiatives and to discuss the research roadmap for Horizon 2020 and beyond. The event allows local practitioners and solution providers to meet and exchange on best practices and lessons learnt, while providing projects and initiatives with an opportunity to increase their visibility and impact and to liaise with any interested stakeholders, including organisations developping similar projects in other regions of the world. It intends to make projects in the field of Crisis Management accessible to a wider range of external stakeholders in a specific region.
What will be the focus of this 3rd edition?
This new edition will focus on standardisation and identified regional-national pressing issues faced by local practitioners such as inter-agencies cooperation and interoperability of communication systems. Furthermore, this edition will give the participants to hear about (1) the initial results of the first Trial organised by DRIVER+, conducted in Warsaw from May 21 to 25, 2018 but also to receive the latest information about the organisation of the second Trial to be organised in Valabre (France) in October 2018.

The concept & programme in a nutshell
As the I4CM intends to bring people in the Crisis Management community closer, the event will be organized along two lines: a CONFERENCE programme on the first day with dedicated panels and speakers and an OFF programme, consisting of more interactive experiences, to be held on the second day.
(Translation from English to Polish and Polish to English will be provided.)
September 3rd – The CONFERENCE programme will include sessions on inter-agency and cross border cooperation processes and instruments, on challenges and obstacles in sharing and coordinating information during multi-agency disaster, and on the importance of standards development in case of multi-agency disaster response. It will close with a forum of ideas, providing a space for initiatives in Crisis Management to inform on their activities, solutions and results.
September 4th – The OFF programme will alternate between parallel workshops and hands-on sessions that will allow participants to meet, share experiences, and learn more about the activities of the DRIVER+ project and related initiatives. Moreover, a poster area and a market place showcasing innovative Crisis Management solutions will be central to the event.
The event will be solutions-focused, with outputs integrated into DRIVER+’s work plan. It aims to strengthen efforts to create a Community of Practice in Crisis Management (namely the Crisis Management Innovation Network Europe, which will be presented on this occasion) whose members can co-create and apply best practices in their organisations. DRIVER+ wants to cultivate a culture of innovation in Crisis Management, with actors working together according to a harmonised set of principles and actions.
