EUROPEAN FP7 PROJECT DEVELOPS FRAMEWORK FOR INTEROPERABILITY OF EUROPEAN CRISIS AND DISASTER RESPONSE

What if a major flooding would happen here in our Great Region, threatening the border areas of Luxembourg, Belgium, France and Germany - would the public safety forces of the three countries be able to work together, communicating without any language barriers and sharing valuable information?

Answering this question is not as easy as one would hope. Efficient communication and access to critical information is a key requirement for the operations of public safety and security services in disasters. Inter-connectedness and cooperation between different rescue teams is essential for saving lives and protecting assets. Nevertheless, sharing of the available information in case of emergency between the teams from different members states is almost impossible.

In 2014, 13 actors from European research institutes, industry, small and medium sized enterprises and practitioners teamed up to develop a concept of a Common Information Space (CIS). The project, funded by the European Commission under the Framework Program 7, was led by the Austrian Institute of Technology. Initiated by Public Safety Communications Europe Forum (PSCE) in which HITEC Luxembourg’s Manager of Technology and Research Projects and Board member of PSCE, Harold Linke, played a crucial role, the project was officially kicked-off in June 2014. The EPISECC CIS concept intends to increase a pan-European interoperability of actors in public safety. EPISECC (Establish Pan-European Information Space to Enhance seCurity of Citziens) focuses on two levels of interoperability: the physical (e.g. network) and the syntactical (language) level.
