This book deals with how to measure innovation in crisis management drawing on data, case studies and lessons learned from different European countries.
The aim of this book is to tackle innovation in crisis management through lessons learned and experiences gained from the implementation of mixed methods through a practitioner driven approach in a large-scale demonstration project (DRIVER+). It explores innovation from the perspective of the end-users by focusing on the needs and problems they are trying to address through a tool (be it an app, a drone, or a training program) and takes a deep dive into what is needed to understand if and to what extent the tool they have in mind can really bring innovation.
This book is a toolkit for readers interested in understanding what needs to be in place to measure innovation: it provides the know-how through examples and best practices. The book will be a valuable source of knowledge for scientistis, practitioners, researchers as well as postgraduate students studying safety, crisis management and innovation.
