Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) The high-level objectives of SecInCoRe are: Objective 1) A pan-European inventory of past critical events and disasters and their consequences (especially in terms of time dimension and costs) focused on collaborative emergency operations and real-time decision making. This objective is highly driven by end-users and targeted by empirical research from the perspectives of economics and engineering taking into account ethics, law, psychology and privacy. Objective 2) Design of a secure, dynamic cloud based knowledge base and communication system concept including the ability to use emergency information by means of a trans-European communication infrastructure. The consortium follows a design science approach a) to define taxonomy of data sets, standards, processes and information systems and b) to formulate a network enabled communication system concept including effects on business models and new possible emergency as well as crisis management models. Latest technological innovations from information management, service provisioning and communication networks will be integrated. Objective 3) Conceptual integration of available technology from the field of information and communication technology into patterns of infrastructure found in first responder organisations. The variety of emergency IT-systems available in Europe and the related variety of information acquisition devices present a new set of challenges to end-users involved in effective emergency management and law enforcement. Objective 4) Evaluation and validation of all results in representative fields of application. A developed, adapted or already in use system will be used for validation in the project scope. The inventory will be used for SecInCoRe system conception and as a database for cooperative disaster management. As a conclusion, extensions to existing crisis management models and modifications to business models of first responder and Police authorities will be proposed
