Event dates
9 July 2024

Around the world, fantastic research is done by universities and research institutions to support first responders. Civil security research always aims to improve first responder capabilities and strengthen resilient societies. 

But as a researcher, how do I know what is needed in the field? What are the challenges first responders face day by day? IFAFRI collected 10 common capability gaps faced by first responders worldwide, such as "real-time geolocation in x,y and z outdoors, indoors, underground" or "real-time monitoring of first responder health". 

This is the second invitation for the Gap Showcase targeting Capability Gap 3: “RAPID IDENTIFICATION – THE ABILITY TO RAPIDLY IDENTIFY HAZARDOUS AGENTS AND CONTAMINANTS” and related specific technical requirements to fulfil this gap.

Our presenters will be Aron Krausz from the UK Home Office, Michelle Royal from FirstLink Analytics and Luisa Knoche from the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief.


Who: Researchers that want to understand first responder needs

When: Tuesday, 9 July 2024 09:00 - 10:00 CEST (Berlin) / 15:00 - 16:00 SGT (Singapore) / 17:00-18:00 AEST (Sydney)
