On 5 December, our team gathered for an online interim review meeting, marking a significant milestone in CENTAUR’s first year.
This meeting provided an opportunity to present the year’s achievements to our Project Officer and external reviewers, and to gain valuable feedback for the next phase.
Over the past year, our project team has undertaken various activities to advance the CENTAUR project objectives. Notable achievements include a comprehensive review of the Copernicus Emergency Management Service and the Copernicus Security Service – Supporting EU External and Security Actions product portfolios, a gap analysis of current tools, and the collection of user requirements to guide our project.
Additionally, we identified and defined eight use cases – five focused on urban flooding, three on water and food insecurity – one of which is a cross-cutting case. These use cases will play a central role in validating and testing our crisis indicators.
For the development of the 6 crisis indexes covering the areas of urban flooding, water and food insecurity, the project team has designed three conceptual models which will integrate several indicators. This process will culminate in the creation of a platform that will allow users to visualise the indicators and make them accessible to our stakeholders.
The project management team would like to thank all partners, the Project Officer and external reviewers for their invaluable contributions.
