New Perspectives in Crisis Management and Training: Prepare for the Domino Effect in Crisis Situations (PREDICT).
The aim of the EU funded PREDICT project is to develop a comprehensive software solution for dealing with cascading effects in multi-sectoral crisis situations, covering aspects of critical infrastructures.
Based on a complex derailment scenario, that involves the spillage of dangerous goods and the cascade of events that can occur, the current abilities of the PREDICT solution will be demonstrated and discussed. Furthermore, we will receive your input about the potential of the PREDICT solution in training and operational scenarios

13:00 – 14:00 Buffet lunch

14:00 – 17:00 Security Platform Topics

  • Refugees Flows, their presence in railway transport and the consequences.
  • New ways for UIC the Security Division and Platform to quickly respond to actual incidents and resulting members needs for information exchange.

Save the date and make your travel and accommodation arrangements as soon as possible.
