EnhANcing emergencY management and response to extreme WeatHER and climate Events

Management Agency/Funding: H2020-EU.3.7. - Secure societies - Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens

Topic: DRS-01-2015 - Crisis management topic 1: potential of current and new measures and technologies to respond to extreme weather and climate events

Duration: 06/2016 - 08/2019

At the C.I.K. the following doctoral thesis resulted from this project: “ Entwicklung eines Vorgehens zum Safety Assessment für sicherheitskritische Informationssysteme in der zivilen Gefahrenabwehr am Beispiel der Feuerwehr“ by Christina Schäfer, 05.12.2018.


The principal objective of ANYWHERE is to enable society as a whole and the main civil protection agencies to respond more rapidly than today to extreme climate and weather events, and to better cope with the high social, environmental and economic impacts related to these extremes.

The project will establish a pan-European platform on extreme climate risks that will enable to identify, in a number of geographic regions, critical situations that could lead to loss of life and economic damages. Such early-warning should enable to improve protection measures and, in case of catastrophic situations, ameliorate the coordination of rescue operations.

The platform will therefore serve as decision-making tool for various authorities when faced with a situation of crisis, and will provide state-of-the-art early warning systems to help exposed populations avert disaster.


The ultimate objective of ANYWHERE is to empower exposed responder institutions and citizens to enhance their anticipation and pro-active capacity of response to face extreme and high-impact weather and climate events. This will be achieved through the operational implementation of cutting-edge innovative technology as the best way to enhance citizen's protection and saving lives.

ANYWHERE proposes to implement a Pan-European multi-hazard platform providing a better identification of the expected weather-induced impacts and their location in time and space before they occur. This platform will support a faster analysis and anticipation of risks prior the event occurrence, an improved coordination of emergency reactions in the field and help to raise the self-preparedness of the population at risk.

This significant step-ahead in the improvement of the pro-active capacity to provide adequate emergency responses is achievable capitalizing on the advanced forecasting methodologies and impact models made available by previous RTD projects, maximizing the uptake of their innovative potential not fully exploited up to now. The consortium is build upon a strong group of Coordinators of previous key EC projects in the related fields, together with 12 operational authorities and first responders' institutions and 6 leading enterprises of the sector.

The platform will be adapted to provide early warning products and locally customizable decision support services proactively targeted to the needs and requirements of the regional and local authorities, as well as public and private operators of critical infrastructures and networks. It will be implemented and demonstrated in 4 selected pilot sites to validate the prototype that will be transferred to the real operation. The market uptake will be ensured by the cooperation with a SME and Industry Collaborative Network, covering a wide range of sectors and stakeholders in Europe, and ultimately worldwide.

Specific sub-project

  • Facilitate creative approaches for innovation by

            - understanding relevant behaviours and constraints w.r.t. self-p*
            - deriving guidelines for tool/service design
            - implementing guidelines and recommendations in IT based tool
            - validating outputs by internal and external case studies

  • Contribute to overall ANYWHERE objectives via pilot sites and exploitation

EnhANcing emergencY management and response to extreme WeatHER and climate Events (ANYWHERE) is funded within EU’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (EC-HORIZON2020-PR700099-ANYWHERE).
