11 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 first invitation for the Gap Showcase targeting Capability Gap 4: “INTEGRATION OF INFORMATION – THE ABILITY TO INCORPORATE INFORMATION FROM MULTIPLE AND NONTRADITIONAL SOURCES INTO INCIDENT COMMAND OPERATIONS” and related specific technical requirements to fulfil this gap. The second invitation for the same presentation will be sent out for August, 15 07:00 UTC time targeting the Asian region.

Our presenters will be Aron Krausz from the UK Home Office, Michelle Royal from FirstLink Analytics and Gerry Doucette from the Canadian Centre for Security Science.


Who: Researchers that want to understand first responder needs

When: Thursday, 11 July 2024 07:00 – 08:00 PDT (Los Angeles) / 10:00 - 11:00 EDT (Washington) / 16:00- 17:00 CEST (Berlin)
