Award for Dutch Ministry of Internal Affairs ‘Outstanding Contribution to Public Warning’

EU project: Cell Broadcast for Public Warning The ‘Cell Broadcast for Public Warning – sharing knowledge and experiences and identification and standardisation of (technical) requirements’ project will be carried out from 1 September 2008 until 31 December 2009. Cell Broadcast is a technology used for communicating with the general public in high-risk and crisis situations. After a successful tender the system will be implemented in the Netherlands in the period 2009 and going live in the beginning of 2010. An important part of the project concerns the sharing of Cell Broadcast knowledge with other (EU) countries to gain more in-depth knowledge on the subject. An other objective is to provide direction for the mobile (standardization) industry and the European Commission in order to offer our citizens a seamless Cell Broadcast service for warning and informing the public in times of crisis at both national and international level.

As a subproject within this project, events will be organized together with 6 EU countries. These 6 countries (Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, the United Kingdom and Sweden) are the countries which jointly submitted the Call for Proposals of the European Commission in May 2008 (Prevention, Preparedness and Consequence Management of Terrorism and Other Security Related Risks programme) and are referred to as the ‘partner countries’. The countries which participate in the events, but do not belong to this group of 6 organizing countries are referred to as ‘participating countries’ (for instance, Belgium, France, Finland, Norway, Estonia and Austria).
