Civil Protection, a strategic topic for Pôle Risques
Complexity of disasters and incidents increases more
and more each year due to many factors.
Climate change has an impact on natural disasters and
increase their probability and potentiality. Urbanization
and densification of economic exchanges increase
the vulnerability of our societies whom expectations
meanwhile increase in terms of reactivity, quality of
response and efficiency.
Civil protection actors (fire fighters, rescuers, USAR teams,
authorities, NGOs...) activities are more complex, more
technical. Therefore there is a need to significantly
increase the response team capacities and capabilities.

technologies and knowledge to the evolution of the needs.

the following main topics :
Decision making solutions, incidents management,
