Abstract

Project ERMA (Electronic Risk Management Architecture) aims to build a reference platform for risk management in the domains of natural as well as man-made disasters with a specific focus on needs of small and medium-sized communities. Communities might be public institutions as well as private sector organisations which share obligations and duties for risk prevention and response. Hence, specific attention will be devoted to a customisable platform, which can be tailored to the needs of the individual risk at hand as well as local equipment and requirements.
