Response Without Borders: Intelligent Software and Hardware Systems Connecting European Disaster Management
November 23, 2012
International relief supplies and personnel support during earthquakes, floods or hurricane incidents are seen as a matter of course today. The work of relief forces, however, is impeded not only by language barriers and unfavorable weather conditions, but also by the lack of standards, equipment and execution regulations.
The EC-funded project IDIRA addresses precisely these issues. 18 organizations from 7 EU countries are searching for solutions over a project duration of four years. German partners involved in the project are the Fraunhofer Institute for Transportation and Infrastructure Systems IVI and the German Red Cross, Saxony branch.
