DESTRIERO project is organised in 4 phases:

  • Phase 1: Definition of scenarios and requirements;
  • Phase 2: Research on interoperability in PDNA and RRP;
  • Phase 3 (iterative) Prototype development;
  • Phase 4: Demonstration and Validation. The following figure visualises the phases and its related activities.


The project is divided in 9 workpackages

WP1 Project Management

This WP is responsible coordinate the work among different partners and work packages, line up different activities and to guarantee efficient information exchange among the partners and with the project officer.

WP2 PDNA and RRP user requirements:

This WP is responsible to identify and contact the end-users, collect their needs and requirements, analyse the state of the art in tools for reconstruction and recovery and define proper scenarios for Destriero project.

WP3 Technological Interoperability for damage assessment and recovery needs

he objective of this WP is design a common data exchange reference model in order to achieve semantic data interoperability. This also includes the definition of a standard data format, able to share the same semantic. Semantic and format models result in a better crisis management coordination and performance, by leveraging the links between source data and semantic concepts.

WP4 Functional Interoperability for coordination and planning activities

This WP prepares the interoperability of information between local crisis managers and relief organisations by ensuring the appropriate ability to interpret data during the response and recovery phase. However, functional Interoperability involves more than just information access, and can be achieved only when the shared resources are used effectively to support joint decisions and complementary responses. This last consideration will be the objective of the last activities within this work package.

WP5 DESTRIERO Architecture Design

The DESTRIERO architecture design captures decisions about the organisation of the software, its structural elements and the interfaces by which the system is composed, together with their behaviour as specified in the collaborations among those elements, the composition of these structural and behavioural elements into progressively larger subsystems. This Work Package will follow a hybrid combination of top down and bottom up approaches. Where available, existing design artefacts for technology options shall be incorporated directly into the DESTRIERO design. The top down design will outline the overall composition of the prototype whereas the bottom up approach shall leverage existing services and embed them into the architecture. Assuming that for different types of data different technologies might be used the architecture has to be set up in such a way that candidate technologies can be exchanged. This shall be shown for at least two different technologies when this seems to be reasonable.

WP6 Development of platform for PDNA and RRP

This work package aims to implement the architectures and methods proposed in the context of the previous research work packages. The work follows two parallel lines of activity: the implementation of the software needs to be realised and a test suite needs to be established. The software implementation will follow the design as being defined in task 5.1. It is assumed that a number of pre-existing components can be utilised for the realisation of the software. The test suite is being set up as a means for measurement of success of the implementation. It will also guide implementers of WP 7.3 in their efforts to connect existing systems to the DESTRIERO environment.

WP7 DESTRIERO Modules Integration

This work package aims at integrating all modules, including legacy systems and modules specifically developed or adapted for DESTRIERO the in WP6, to obtain a prototype that will be used for proof-of-concept testing, demonstration and validation.

WP8 Demonstration and Validation

This WP aims at evaluating the DESTRIERO suite by using it in a real-case scenario to assess e.g. the interoperability requirements, faster needs assessment (e.g., through combined remote sensors and field information), facilitated priority setting due to more comparable information (using international standards of information presentation) and through the MYRIAD Decision Support Tool etc.

WP9 Exploitation and Dissemination

WP9 includes strategic activities addressed to communication, business planning and networking:

  • Dissemination of the project results within the DESTRIERO partnership and toward stakeholder groups by workshops, congresses and international meetings;
  • Setting up and management of the DESTRIERO User Group/Expert Panel to be involved in validation and dissemination phases;
  • Defining the DESTRIERO Exploitation Plan describing rules, roadmap and agreements among DESTRIERO partners for the exploitation of results.
  • Investigation of legal aspects related to the introduction of DESTRIERO.
