Millions of people around the world are affected by man-made and natural disasters – from hurricanes and fires to explosions and earthquakes – every year. Disasters can cause a full range of reactions as well as significant damage to communities, infrastructure systems and the economy. Therefore, strengthening general resilience in populations is a top priority. The EU-funded STRATEGY project will develop a pan-European framework of pre-standardisation activities for systems, solutions and procedures. It will address crisis management, validated by sustainable tests and evaluation frameworks that can improve the crisis management and disaster resilience capabilities. Specifically, the project will aim to streamline and validate technical and organisational interoperability in a fully transboundary configuration through the implementation of use cases involving EU and National Standardisation Bodies
Atos will lead the standardisation stream for Critical Infrastructure Protection and will also actively contribute to other streams, including Command and Control, Early Warning and Rapid Damage Assessment, CBRN-E and Training. Atos will also lead the consultation with non-standardisation association and other groups of stakeholders.
