Study Digital Transformation in Civil Emergency Response

Is the digital transformation in civil security lagging behind development (e.g. in relation to the economy)? Does this mean that optimal procedures are not used to save human lives and protect property? How much hidden potential still exists here?

At the end of 2019, the study “Digital Transformation in Civil Emergency Response” will be launched in order to assess the status quo as well as the integrated potentials and needs of digital transformation in civil emergency response and to draw conclusions for necessary measures.

The study is based on a combination of the following measures:

  • Survey: on the status quo of digital transformation throughout Germany
  • Interviews: for a detailed discussion of the survey topics
  • Workshop: to discuss the topic on the basis of the results of the survey
  • DeskStudy: for a systematical analysis of the digital transformation and classification of the results

The study is commissioned by the Vereinigung zur Förderung des Deutschen Brandschutzes e.V. (Association for the Promotion of German Fire Protection). The safety innovation center e.V. is carrying out the study, which is sponsored by the SafeInno Foundation, and is accompanied by the University of Paderborn – C.I.K.
