In the context of the preparations for DRIVER+ Trial#2 starting on 22-26 October 2018 in Valabre (France) a booklet containing extensive information about the Trial was recently launched.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Booklet covers information about the project DRIVER+, the Test-Bed (a space for trialling), the Portfolio of Solutions, the Trials and presents in detail the scenario of Trial 2 and the selected solutions. It further provides an outlook on future activities after the event.
THE DRIVER+ TEST-BED
For DRIVER+, an approach based on Trials is a prerequisite for making improvements and avoiding potentially dangerous mistakes in Crisis Management innovation. The Test-bed will provide an arena of virtually connected facilities and crisis labs. It will deliver a pragmatic step-by-step guidance to conducting trials, a reference implementation for all DRIVER+ Trials and general guidance and technical infrastructure to support the Trials.
THE PORTFOLIO OF SOLUTIONS
The Portfolio of Solutions (PoS) is a database driven website describing the capabilities of all the available DRIVER+ solutions. It includes information on the experiences with a solution (i.e. results and outcomes of Trials), but also the needs it addresses, the type of practitioner organisations that have used it, the regulatory conditions that apply, the societal impact considerations, a glossary, and the design of the Trials. It will be extended with third-party solutions when required by the Trials, allowing for the introduction of solutions already used by practitioners or relevant to the Crisis Management field.
THE TRIALS AND TRIAL #2
A series of four Trials and a Final Demonstration will be conducted. The aim is to investigate innovative solutions under simulated crisis conditions, by gradually adapting them to operational constraints, as well as creating acceptance among users through their active involvement and by providing evidence to decision makers that they are cost-effective.
Four solutions have been selected to be tested in Trial #2.
