The Centre for Integrated Emergency Management (CIEM) at the University of Agder invites you to a seminar to present and demo the results from the H2020 project iTRACK and discuss avenues for future work.

iTRACK (Integrated system for real-time TRACKing and collective intelligence in civilian humanitarian missions) focused on increasing safety and security of humanitarian missions and improving efficiency of humanitarian logistics. To this end, we developed a suite of solutions to support tracking, threat detection, navigation, logistics, and coordination in conflict disasters. These solutions are embedded in the work practices and policies for humanitarian conflict situations, and take into account the many responsible data challenges.

iTRACK is designed to be a cost-effective open source system, supporting humanitarian organisations where resources may be limited.

In this interactive seminar, key results from the project will be presented by iTRACK researchers from CIEM, NORCE and Teleplan Globe, with a hands-on demo of selected iTRACK components. On the basis of the demo, we will then discuss a research & innovation agenda as well as concrete next steps.

Topics covered include:

  • data collection and information sharing in conflicts;
  • coordination in conflict settings;
  • technology for better safety and security;
  • monitoring and tracking for logistics;
  • joint policies and standards;
  • sustainability of the iTRACK system and uptake

Lunch will be served.
