Abstract / short description:
"Alert4All" is an EU-funded collaborative project, in the frame of the 3rd Call of FP7 Cooperation Work Programme: Security, which develops an advanced concept for alert and communications towards the population in crisis situations from a European perspective.

To achieve this goal the Alert4All Project will:

- Develop a simulation tool that models the spreading of information and human behaviour according to key influencing factors such as crisis scenario, selected communications plans, social and cultural crowds;

- Investigate the role of new media in the citizens' perception of the crisis and develop new media screening tools to allow authorities completing their picture of the situation and adapt their strategies accordingly;

- Develop an information management portal through which authorities and first responders can securely share and manage the available information about the crises; · Propose new operational concepts (and training material) that allow cooperation between authorities and responders, overcoming regional and national barriers thanks to the tools developed in the project;

- Design a communications system architecture and protocols allowing dissemination of alert messages over diverse communications means (terrestrial, satellite, new media) to increase alert penetration, reliability and resilience in front of major disasters.
