About the DRIVER+ External Cooperation Platforms

The challenges for Crisis Management are manifold with a large variety of threats such as natural disasters, terrorism, pandemics, migration, etc. In order to efficiently answer to these challenges, a vast range of capabilities and expertise is needed. In addition, the threats are often not limited to a certain region or even state, thus, response activities must often stretch over both country borders and language barriers. Crisis Management is a multidisciplinary field and involves many different organisations specialised and covering various mission functions throughout the whole Crisis Management cycle (prevention, preparedness, response, and recovery).

DRIVER+ follows an open and inclusive approach and invests significant efforts for involving external stakeholders in the project’s activities through concrete external cooperation actions.

External cooperation is one of the key success factors for DRIVER+. The consortium seeks to closely work with innovative solution providers, interested and concerned practitioners that may benefit from the results of DRIVER+, and Crisis Management experts providing required extertise to strengthen the project team.

To this end, DRIVER+ created three external cooperation platforms, supported by an online tool: the Community Management Tool (CMT).This is the online meeting place for the platform members to interact and share information, experiences and best practices.
