The key challenge of managing Chemical, Biological, Radiological or Nuclear incidents is the fragmentation of operational response, of specialist knowledge, of processes and of systems.
Pulling together stakeholders, technology providers and scientific experts, CATO will allow for a huge step in preparedness and resilience to CBRN crises. CATO seeks to bring an innovative and comprehensive solution to the diversity of organisational set-ups and of legacy systems for emergency preparedness and management, including information technology, equipment and sensors.
Project CATO brings together a consortium of 25 partners with large practical experience in terror emergency management, existing CBRN information systems, medical response, a long track record in CBRN research as well as advanced research capabilities in the area such as human factors, ethics, data fusion and processing of fuzzy information.
On 12-15 January 2014, CATO attended the 3rd International Conference on Healthcare System Preparedness and Response to Emergencies and Disasters (IPRED III) in Tel Aviv, Israel.
