ICT for the Environment

  • Long term objective:

    To contribute to environmental policies from definition to monitoring

    To help achieve world-class environment administration in the EU by enhancing their efficiency, openness and accountability

    To help creating a EU market for ICT applications and services

History of the action
History of the action

  • FP5 Exploratory action in environmental applications

    • Broad scope: air, water, soil, noise, natural disasters

    • Mixed results and a few outstanding projects:


  • FP6 Focus on disaster management

    • Good intermediate results: ORCHESTRA OASIS, MITRA

  • FP7 Focus on sustainability

Fp6 ict for environmental risk management
FP6 ICT for environmental risk management

FP6 objectives

  • To contribute to the deployment of an eINFRASTRUCTURE for risk management in Europe

  • To promote the development of cost-effective ICT services for disaster mitigation

    • System integration – solution driven

    • Specific technological developments when needed

    • Market & user needs driven

      • Focus on generic solutions

      • Re-usable software components

      • Open source software

      • Interoperability, scalability

    • Based on state-of-the-art risk and environment science

ICT for environmental risk management

The strategic approach 1.

  • to cover the whole risk management cycle.

    Risk assessment, preparedness, early warning, alert, response, recovery, lessons learnt etc.

  • to cover all environmental hazards, including systemic risks / cascading risks

  • to focus on system architecture rather than specific applications

    To decrease the development and maintenance cost whilst improving reliability, scalability and interoperability

Strategic approach 2

  • To support large scale pilot test with end-users

  • To foster pre-standardisation activities as an integral part of RTD

  • To promote open source as a mean to improve the uptake of RTD results

  • To contribute to the relevant EU policies and actions:
