The CRISYS project is the first phase of a TWO-phase demonstration programme:
Phase1 requires preparation of a Strategic Roadmap for the demonstration that will be conducted in Phase2 Integrated and Scalable Crisis Management System (CMS).


To develop a Roadmap for the full implementation of specific demonstration actions in Phase2 whilst establishing contacts and awareness with the main public and private stakeholders in the field of Crisis Management. In order to reach the objective the following actions are envisaged:
  • Make a comprehensive Review of the Current State of Affairs in the CMS field: completed, ongoing and foreseen work
  • Lay out any Further Research work required
  • Assess Relevant Trends: factual, political and situational
  • Identify User Needs and classify requirements to address issues to enhance joint working including equipment interoperability
  • Create Network of users and suppliers with public and private engagement
  • Indicate Opportunities to involve participation of aid-receiving countries
In addition to its main objective, the CRISYS project aims at Disseminating the Findings across European civil protection sector.


The imperative is to understand how the EU civil protection sector operates.

Firstly there is a need to review presently adopted solutions, procedures and the operational, legal, societal, political, legacy environments in which those mechanisms are set. Secondly, the parameters of operations can be established – not simply scenarios but how to create a wider capability and capacity for the truly unexpected event. This will allow understanding of operational issues surrounding an effective response (e.g. interoperability of technical solutions, commonality of procedures, decision and crisis decision tools, the importance of languages; common training approaches; homogeneous risk assessment methodologies etc.) for the most significant demonstration actions.

Sector Actors and Stakeholders Involvement: Users and citizens are the key to the success of the project, and building a respected relationship with them is a fundamental part of the project. This requires the creation a public-private dialogue with local – national - international users, first responders and national governments and citizens.

The leadership role of EOS and its Members and the Project Partners is therefore to gather information about the needs of the Stakeholders via MEETINGS with FIRST RESPONDERS, USERS and SUPPLIERS of a specific civil protection sector around Europe, while establishing a sound network of contacts for Phase 2 and gathering the key elements for developing and validating the practical requirements to be included in the Roadmap.


The major challenge is to link existing approaches, technical solutions, procedures, standards etc. in the civil protection field, which are extremely fragmented at national and even local level, to permit a fast and adequate response to natural and man-made threats.
Primarily for use in EU countries the system must be deployable abroad to cover Europe’s external humanitarian aid programmes and reflect the stronger post Lisbon Treaty alliances that reinforce civil-military mutual support (technologies, operations) and European internal security. Thus, the process toward the Roadmap:
  • Must recognise what already exists and how Crisis Management is organised and managed.
  • Note changes in EU Civil Protection policy and the Member States relationships, taking into account the internal security policy and the need to link with external operations for crisis management.
  • Get first responders/users and operators needs in dedicated multi-stakeholders meetings hold in MS
  • Assess effectiveness of capabilities and capacities to meet anticipated and unidentifiable threats
  • Target community resilience and business continuity.
  • Propose improvements in joint working, EU policy and practices to strengthen cohesion, interoperability, operational effectiveness, cultural and moral values and affordability.
  • Test and validate with stakeholder actors in TWO WORKSHOPS
  • Disseminate Project findings in a FINAL CONFERENCE and via WEB
