"Community of Safe and Secure Cities"

COSSEC members, such as citizen organisations and other cities, are pivotal in the development process and technology use particularly from the perspective of the end-user. COSSEC providers will give the perception from the population to ensure the requirements set out by IMPETUS include larger societal objectives. COSSEC will provide a clear understanding of the capabilities and operational opportunities that IMPETUS solutions provide. COSSEC will aid in formulating the requirements for the subsequent development of the ethical framework and data-privacy mechanisms. The requirements will also serve as a basis to define criteria for the evaluation of the ethical framework. COSSEC members are vital in the improvement of concepts of operations.

Membership of COSSEC is in principle open to any organisations or individuals with a legitimate interest in the topics covered by the project. But numbers are limited. If you are interested in taking part, please get in touch with our COSSEC Contact (see “Contacts” tab).

IMPETUS will provide regular interviews, webinars, custom software manual and other educational materials, as well as specific workshops and training, around the pilots to evaluate the technology from the end-user perspective.

COSSEC will be hosted on the Disaster Risk Reduction platform
