A report by the EC published this week highlighting the EU’s R&D expenses and results states that, despite early technology leads, the EU has created few companies that now dominate new markets. In the last fifteen years, the EU share of the world gross expenditures in research and innovation has fallen from 25 to 20% while both its world output of scientific publications and its share of world’s patents dropped from 33% to 25%.This relative decline has incentivized the EC to find new ways of boosting its R&D competitiveness.
PSCE is delighted to announce that the EPISECC, SECTOR, REDIRNET and SecInCore projects are jointly organizing a meeting on Common Information Space for information sharing in disaster risk management to take place on the 28th of February, from 09:30 to 15:00, at HUSA President Park Hotel in Brussels.
The intercommunication of systems is the current predominant challenge in Public Protection & Disaster Relief (PPDR) and many see enhanced interoperability as the most effective way to improve disaster management. Aside from linguistic barriers, the lack of common taxonomies and standardized Network Enabled Communication have been identified as the two main impediments to European interoperability.
As a means of tackling these issues, the four projects respond to the European Commission call for a Common Information Space by suggesting approaches to its realization as well as collecting ideas and feedbacks from organisations that operate at the EU level.
We look forward to welcoming you at the event!
