Description

The Disaster Management Artificial Intelligence Knowledge Network (ARTION) seeks to become a world-class network for knowledge sharing in the field of disaster management artificial intelligence (AI). Through its network, it hopes to guide the development and use of AI tools by first responders across Europe.  

The project focuses on developing and promoting AI technologies for disaster management, collecting data for training purposes, providing online modules for knowledge-sharing and establishing new partnerships between relevant actors. In achieving its goals, the initiative aims to bridge the gap between AI scientists and disaster-management experts and increase the capacity of first responders. ARTION will equip civil protection experts with the data, tools and expertise to better manage disasters and challenges, while stimulating further research into how AI can be applied in specific disaster-management scenarios.

The project is a strategic partnership between the KIOS Center of Excellence, the University of Lille in France, established public training and advising institution (CIK) Crisis Information Centre in Poland, as well as civil protection agencies including the Cyprus Civil Defence (with ample experience in organising UCPM training courses) and the Regione Autonoma Della Sardegna civil protection agency in Italy with extensive expertise in forecasting disaster risks.
