The aim of the CascEff project is to improve our understanding of the cascading effects in crisis situations to reduce the consequences of escalating incidents in complex environments. In order to do so the CascEff project will identify initiators, dependencies and key decision points. These will be used to develop an Incident Evolution Tool which will enable improved decision support in escalating incidents, contributing to the reduction of collateral damages and other unfortunate consequences associated with large crises.
The EU project CascEff is funded via the Seventh Framework Programme. The CascEff consortium consists of eleven partners from five countries and is coordinated by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden.
