A four-year EU FP7 project, where sixteen organisations, including LSE, worked to Make Europe Safer in Emergencies. Reviews of Policies and Practice in ‘At Risk’ situations identified the changing priority from terrorism to flooding, structures for handling emergencies and some shortfalls in systems. New modelling and simulation methodologies, live testing, as well as development of the SOCIONICAL Crowd Management App has spectacularly demonstrated the social and economic relevance of our research, including use at the 2012 Olympics and The Lord Mayor’s Show. This has led to continued interest from civil protection authorities all over Europe and the founding of a spinoff company. Major events at the European Parliament and City Hall, London were supported by publication of scientific and policy makers’ documents that have been widely welcomed. When these recommended concepts are used in emergency planning, SOCIONICAL has demonstrated lives can be saved and safer.
