Cross-border emergency management are of utmost importance in the case of natural disasters. The project „Cross-border Cooperation in Logistical Support in Crisis Situations” aims to enhance collaboration and information exchange in the field of logistical support for rescue operations after natural disasters. The logistical support provides necessary services to support the affected population and to improve rescue services or preventive measures.
The project is funded by the German-Polish Science Foundation (DPWS) and carried out by researchers of University of Szczecin, Poland and University of Salzburg, Austria. The project team will evaluate the current state of the governmental cooperation in crisis situations and identify improvable procedures. The results will be presented at a conference in December 2017 at University of Szczecin and in a book published by Springer.
