TRACENET aims to develop a civil protection training centre network, with the support of a scientific institution, to offer technologies and innovations for prevention, preparedness and response, to support policy and decision-making, to encourage scientific excellence and to disseminate and exchange state-of-the-art knowledge and expertise. Within TRACENET, planners, decision makers, experts, teams and civil protection modules will jointly operate, test and learn from each other interacting within an online and real-time 3D environment. Such an innovative framework will offer simulation scenarios and countless opportunities to build expertise, share knowledge and establish remote but real contacts among participants, reducing costs and the environmental impact of training activities. TRACENET aims to be the front runner of a future larger network that includes all participating states of the Union Mechanism of Civil protection where any disaster based scenario can be shared, discussed and used as a working and training platform.
TRACENET aims also to feed the UCP Knowledge Network with guidelines, lessons learnt, and multi-user training courses, implementing an open-source, extendable and replicable framework useful for simulating other hazards. TRACENET will finally create synergies among newly established thematic communities and centres of expertise and a wide range of target groups focused on specific natural or human-induced hazards as well as preparedness and response activities. TRACENET will run for 24 months and its partnership involves 6 partners from 4 EU Member States.
