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 IS the focus of this 4th edition?

This edition will focus on volunteer management in a crisis situation, with special attention being paid to issues around organised volunteers, spontaneous volunteers and psychosocial support to volunteers. Furthermore, this edition will give the participants an opportunity to learn about the latest development regarding the organisation of the fourth Trial to be organised in Styria (Austria) in September 2019 and whose focus is also on Volunteer Management.
