Design Review Meeting of the I-REACT project

22 November 2016

The Design Review Meeting of the I-REACT project will take place in Barcelona the 24th and 25th of November, hosted by the Fire Fighters: it is an important milestone of the project that will see the participation of members from all the Consortium. The initial technical design and the user requirements collected during the International User Requirement Workshop (IURW), which was held at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris last September, will be reviewed in thematic plenary sessions.

All the key outcomes of all previous activates will be presented and discussed, together with the main I-REACT functionalities and processes. The business and the communication strategies will be reviewed and analysed in order to define the next strategical steps towards a successful exploitation.
This meeting will finalize the innovation design phase and it will drive the implementation phase of the project.

I-REACT (Improving Resilience to Emergencies through Advanced Cyber Technologies) is a Horizon2020 3-year project (2016-2018), coordinated by ISMB, which involves a Consortium of 20 partners. The project aims to implement a platform that, thanks to advanced technologies, will be able to gather and analyse various data sources to generate real-time information on floods, fires, earthquakes and other natural hazards. I-REACT will integrate multiple existing systems and European assets to facilitate early planning of disaster risk reduction activities and it will focus on natural disasters triggered by extreme weather.
