DRIVER+ is the new phase of the DRIVER project.
First Press Release, October 2017
By April 2020 Driver+ is committed to deliver and make sustainable:
The Institute of ICT contributes to Driver+ through the Centre for Security and Defence Management.
What has changed
In the transition from Driver to Driver+, the project structure was simplified to more clearly link the objectives and the results of the project and to improve the path towards successful implementation of the project plans. To reflect the new architecture of the project, the leadership and project management team have changed, some partners have left and new partners were introduced to the consortium.
In addition, the involvement of external stakeholders, Crisis Management experts, practitioners and solution providers has been significantly enhanced. DRIVER+ is resolutely opened to the external world and its success will largely depend on its capacity to develop strong links with external collaborators. To achieve this, DRIVER+ will foster the formation of a Community of Practice on Crisis Management (CoPCM), linking existing Crisis Management networks and organising events especially tailored for that purpose.
Support DRIVER+ and Join the Crisis Management Community!
To increase the relevance of the project results, and ensure that the DRIVER+ trials are conducted taking into account the technological state-of-the-art and relevant knowledge available outside of the consortium, the project events will be opened up to additional innovative solution providers, experts and practitioners; these will have, in return, the opportunity to use the expertise generated as part of the project to support their own initiatives.
Your expertise, lessons learnt and best practices from past experience are of great value to the consortium, so that we can jointly progress in the critical areas of Crisis Management and create acceptance for new solutions and approaches towards the successful introduction of innovation in the field.
If you are interested to get involved in the DRIVER+ activities to offer your solutions to the trials or to get your hands on innovative technology and share best practices and experiences, you are cordially invited to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
