The EU in humanitarian demining, Phase 2. State-of-the-art on Humanitarian Demining Technologies, Products, Services and Practices in Europe.(EUDEM2).

Project Details

Description

EUDEM2 aims at supporting the EU RTD&D consortia and policy makers, and the humanitarian demining community. The approach is an active one whereby actors are contacted directly either by interviews, questionnaires, demands for inputs to the knowledge base and for participation to workshops.
EUDEM2 will: 1) structure, analyse and disseminate information on technology, R&D, mine action procedures; 2) update existing EUDEM results on technology maturity and extend, restructure the EUDEM web data base; 3) conduct a broad scope technology survey; 4) pro-actively identify transferable technologies from other applications towards humanitarian demining; 5) create expert internet fora on real bottlenecks, potentialities and amount of work needed for the transfer of new technologies; 6) identify actors with promising technologies; 7) distribute information towards working groups on a common theme in R&D or a specific demining activity; 8) collaborate with organizations like JRC, EU:DGs, JMU, UN, ITEP, GICHD.
