Scope, rationale, context: general description. Precise here if this technology is currently use (eg. company name or contact info) The CRISMA project shall develop a simulation-based decision support system (Integrated Crisis Management System - ICMS), for modelling crisis management, improved action and preparedness. The ICMS shall facilitate simulation and modelling of realistic crisis scenarios, possible response actions, and the impacts of crisis depending on both the external factors driving the crisis development and the various actions of the crisis management team. A common set of criteria and performance indicators for crisis management simulation and optimisation provided by CRISMA modelling system shall enable decision makers and crisis managers to: (1) model possible multi-sectoral crisis scenarios and assess the consequences of an incident, (2) simulate possible impacts resulting from alternative actions, (3) support strategic decisions on capabilities, related investments, reserves, inventories (3) optimise the deployment of resources dedicated to crisis response in-line with the evolvement of a crisis, and (4) to improve action plans for preparedness and response phases of the crisis management. Long term sustainability and uptake of the CRISMA results shall be assured through recommendations from decision makers and external high-level experts in the CRISMA advisory board, compatibility with ongoing developments in environmental usage area, and design for extensibility through new models, criteria and performance indicators. Key CRISMA value proposition is the higher security of the European citizens, through improved understanding of the crisis evolvement and the impact of various decisions and actions at disposal of the crisis management on that evolvement, as well as through provision of the IT-support for decision making and auditing of the decisions made during both real and simulated crisis events.
