The preparation for crisis events is time-consuming and expensive. Modern simulation environments and “serious gaming” open up completely new possibilities. The research project “Crisis simulation for the collaboration of emergency forces and the population” (TEAMWORK) investigates how emergency forces and the population can prepare for crisis events together in a virtual environment. They come together in the TEAMWORK community and pursue three focal points: formalisation, simulation and evaluation. Everyone can get involved in all three areas according to their interests and abilities and gain insights for crisis scenarios.
