RescueLab aims to develop innovative education and training methods, designed to increase the quality and cost-effectiveness of training exercises in the field of civil protection. New education models are realised and evaluated. By means of (partially) automatic recording of training exercises, it is intended to create an objective basis for debriefing purposes. The results from RescueLab will contribute to the sustainable quality management of operative, tactical and strategic training exercises for civil protection.
The chair C.I.K. at the University of Paderborn in RescueLab focuses on the basic investigation and evaluation of IT-supported possibilities for the analysis of training exercises in the field of civil protection, and the visualisation of the respective data for trainees, observers and referees. Thereby C.I.K. in the project consortium assumes the tasks to answer basic questions scientifically, and to prove the benefit of the RescueLab solutions towards the current technical and scientific state of the art. The investigation is based on workshops and interviews as well as observations of training exercises with strong involvement of experts from the field of civil protection.
