SAFERS 2nd General Assembly & Design Review Fruitfully Concluded

SAFERS 2nd General Assembly & Design Review Fruitfully Concluded

Organised by the project coordinator LINKS, SAFERS project held its 2nd General Assembly on the 7th and 8th October 2021 in a hybrid format, where part of the consortium joined the event virtually and the other part met in person at LINKS premises in Turin.

During the assembly, the partners presented the current status of the project and the achieved milestones during the 1st year in the presence of the project officer. We also discussed the next actions to be implemented in the different work packages of the project.

The assembly also hosted two important sessions: the design review session and the advisory board discussion session. The design review session aimed at assessing the preliminary SAFERS designs and at gathering important feedbacks towards the next steps that will result in the implementation of the α release of all SAFERS services, which is due for the first quarter of 2022. The session brought together 16 stakeholders from 12 countries representing different stakeholders’ clusters. The advisory board discussion was a smaller session and it aimed at collecting some inputs in regards to the exploitation of SAFERS platform and its intelligent services.

SAFERS Consortium is very grateful for virtually hosting the discussions with the stakeholders and we would like to thank all the participants for their great contribution and encourage them to closely follow the development of the project and take part in the future activities which will be organised!

Join SAFERS Design Review on 7 October 2021!

Join SAFERS Design Review on 7 October 2021!

After the International User Requirements Workshop (IURW)which was organised back in February, we started the design of the SAFERS Intelligent Services and Platform thanks to the many end-user requirements that were collected through co-design activities with many stakeholders.

Since then, the SAFERS technical partners have worked on translating these requirements into functionalities for each SAFERS Intelligent Service as well as for the integrated platform. 

In the framework of the Second General Assembly that will take place on the 7th of October, we would like to assess the preliminary SAFERS designs; gathering important feedbacks towards the next steps that will bring to the implementation of the α release of all SAFERS services, which is due for the first quarter of 2022.
 
Therefore, we are pleased to invite you to virtually attend the SAFERS Design review that is scheduled on the 7th October 2021 from 15:00 to 18:00 CET. During this activity, SAFERS technical partners will present the design of the Intelligent Services one-by-one, and the invited stakeholders will give their feedback through online live polling and plenary discussions following this agenda [link].

We are looking especially for firefighters, civil protection staff, police, medical service, urban planners, infrastructure managers, forest services, environmental agencies, and BFSI industry, volunteers and digital volunteers to be part of this review.
 
Registration is required through the following [link] which will stay open until 29/09/2021.
 
The General Assembly will take place virtually via Microsoft teams, whereas some members of the SAFERS Consortium will gather physically at the LINKS Foundation headquarters in Turin (Italy). The Microsoft teams link to join the review will be provided after the registration is made.

We look forward to welcoming you in our review!
 

*The main conclusions of the co-design activities will be published in our upcoming newsletter, stay tuned!

SAFERS Leverages the CAP and Invites its Community to Join the 2021 CAP Implementation Workshop and Training in October

SAFERS project will leverage the international standard Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) to enhance shared situational awareness and obtain better emergency warnings for the stakeholders involved in emergency management actions. 

The 2021 Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) Implementation Workshop will be conducted as  an  online  Webinar on 13-14  October  from  13:00  to  17:15 CEST (Geneva time) each day followed by a Training on 15 October. Call-in instructions will be sent to all registered participants.

Everyone interested in emergency alerting is welcome including managers and technical staff at the governmental, non-governmental organizations  (NGOs) as well as the private sector, media, etc. CAP Implementation Workshops are technical meetings conducted in  English  without  interpretation. These meetings do not set policy;  they  are  intended solely for information sharing among experts. Accordingly, participants represent themselves and need not be formally  associated  with  organizations.

Registration is free of charge, but it is necessary to receive the required password for  the  video  conference. Further information is found on the  workshop website as well as  the event’s flyer.
