Since the kick-off meeting in December 2022, the SAFE-CITIES team have been busy with a variety of activities such as for example creating the theoretical approach to the participatory model, designing the SAFE-CITIES platform architecture or making initial developments to the simulation platform. The General Assembly meeting provided the update with the current works. The progress is generally well and we are proceeding according to the plan.
During the first day of the event, numerous presentations and discussions were held. There were also Q&A sessions organised. Stakeholders presented work progress and main achievements of certain Tasks within the Work Packages. There was also a tour around the stadium, which participants found very interesting. The project’s partners from the Provincial Police HQ in Gdansk presented the security-related aspects regarding mass events organised at the Gdansk’s Stadium. We also welcomed a new partner in the project – Università Verde di Bologna APS!
On the second day of the event Security Vulnerability Assessment (SVA) workshop were held during which the stakeholders evaluated the methodology based on 8 scenarios of dangerous situations in public areas. The main output is to provide the project team with feedback and recommendations for improving the methodology.
The meeting was attended by representatives of various organisations: LEA, association, SMI, ministry, RTO, academia, SME, municipality, first responders. All of them provided a diverse feedback on our works which will help us to address the needs of the all stakeholders. The event was a great opportunity to strengthen relations inside the consortium are and there were a lot of fruitful discussions both during the event but also out of the record.
