Conference Paper
IN emergency response, parallel working coordination groups and command and control centres are responsible to deal with complex events. A well-functioning exchange of information between organizations, officials and these coordination groups is the basis for an efficient risk management. This paper describes a methodical approach for field observa...
Conference Paper
Even today, disruptions caused by major municipal events can lead to a dangerous overcrowding of railway stations and other transport infrastructures. An effective flow of information and interorganizational cooperation of all involved stakeholders are an important factor for managing these events. Based on the different responsibilities in Germany...
Chapter
Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) is a challenging operation for all involved organisations: Authorities, critical infrastructure providers and even policy makers. Integrated risk management is required to keep risks as low as possible and well-developed crisis management helps to mitigate the effects of events that have occurred. Achieving...
Conference Paper
Collapsed buildings are one of the most complex challenges for rescue forces. The large amount of incoming information in particular is a major challenge to handle for the involved forces. The Assessment of this information is necessary in order to be able to give reliable statements about the number of buried and missing victims. To improve the ha...
Conference Paper
Recent events have shown the vulnerability of IT systems of companies, organizations or even governments to hacker attacks. At the same time, information technologies are becoming increasingly established and important in various industries (digitalization). With a view to the modern development of terrorism, cyber-attacks can be used to physically...
Chapter
This chapter focuses on resilience stakes that characterize urbanizing cross-border regions. While cross-border regions are characterized by multiple sources of vulnerabilities that are inherent to their development and history, knowledge remains partial in relation to how these regions address disasters that could affect both sides of the frontie...

Conference Paper
Resilience to disasters depends on measures taken before, during and after the occurrence of adverse events. These measures require interactions between people belonging to different organizations (public, private, nonprofit) and citizens in normal and stressful situations. The efficiency of resilience measures results from the collective interacti...

Conference Paper
Dealing with terrorist attacks is a major challenge - especially for critical infrastructure protection when hazards cannot be described in normative risk management systems, e.g., anthropogenic threats with low probability but high consequences. Using the example of rail-bound public transportation, a multi-agent simulation of a terrorist attack o...
Conference Paper
Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) is a challenging operation for all involved organisations such as authorities, critical infrastructure providers, and even policies. On one hand, an integrated risk management is required to keep risks as low as possible, on the other hand a well-developed crisis management helps to mitigate the effects of o...

Question (1)
Question
The researcher who was creating a project is no longer working in this project. Due to his status as the "creator" of the project, I cannot remove him. Is there a way to deal with this problem? If I try to remove him, the following message appears:
"You can't remove this researcher from this project It's not possible for you to remove this researcher because they created this project."

Project
The high – and continuously rising – number of passengers using public transport in Germany is leading to an expansion of the services offered by public transportation operators. The existing transportation infrastructures – especially the railway stations – can only partly cope with this rapid growth in passenger volume. Overcrowding on platforms and access routes is already occurring - especially in the event of operational disruptions by natural disasters or major public events. This crowding may lead to passenger injuries or to a standstill of operations for safety reasons. The research project CroMa aims to improve robustness, safety and security as well as the performance of railway stations under peak loads. For this purpose, recommendations for structural design measures and appropriate crowd management as well as guidelines for risk, resilience and information management will be developed in cooperation between engineers, natural scientists, social psychologists and end users.
Archived project
The objectives of the project are to investigate how the resilience of trains and related infrastructure of the German-French high-speed public passenger-transport network can be increased against terrorist attack. It was funded by the BMBF and ANR. More details: http://rehstrain.w3.rz.unibw-muenchen.de/
