Workshop on Virtual Operation Supporting Teams

Representatives of the EmerGent project participated at this years “Virtual Operations Support Teams” (VOST) and “Virtual Operations Management Teams” (VOMT) Workshop in Hamburg, Germany. During the workshop, different aspects about social media for the use of hazard prevention were discussed.  The VOST intends to evaluate social media during a disaster situation to support the appraisal of the situation. This workshop was for experts and was based on the previous DGSMTech. This year the focus was at operational tactics. The insight of the EmerGent project contributed to the workshop, so that it was possible to test this during the Hamburg Marathon.
