German End-Users Meeting for RESILENS
Dr Ehiaze Ehimen of FAC was in Cologne, Germany on 25th October for the last of three exercises to demonstrate the tools developed within the RESILENS project to end-users, to elicit feedback which can be used to enhance the tools’ effectiveness.
The Resilience Management Matrix and Audit Toolkit (REMMAT) and the European Resilience Management Guideline (ERMG) developed by the RESILENS project were presented and evaluated in the table-top testing workshop last month.
Representatives from the German transportation critical infrastructure sector Landesbetrieb Straßenbau Nordrhein-Westfalen, the Federal Highway Research Institute (BASt), and the Federal Office of Civil Protection and Disaster Assistance (BBK) were in attendance and gave valuable insights which will be incorporated into the future refinement of the RESILENS tools.
