The Use of Social Media and Crowdsourcing to improve Disaster Management

Workshop in Bled, Slovenia

 

Are you interested to know more about the use of social media and crowdsourced data to enhance disaster response? Join us for this one day workshop organised by the E2mC consortium, gathering a wide variety of stakeholders from the EU space ecosystem, crisis management practitioners as well as research organisations and industrials.

The event will showcase the progress and promising results of the E2mC project (Evolution of Emergency Copernicus Services), namely featuring a technical presentation and demonstration of Copernicus WITNESS, the prototype designed by the E2mC project to become a new component of the Copernicus EMS service portfolio. By leveraging user-generated data, Copernicus Witness has the potential to significantly improve the timeliness and accuracy of geospatial information products provided to civil protection authorities, ultimately resulting in an enhanced response to disasters.

The event will feature speeches from ESA and the European Commission and  presentations of related project and initiatives.
