The fair “Florian” is a national fair in Dresden, dedicated to the presentation of technology for fire-fighting, disaster relief and medical rescue. It is open to domain experts and the public. The fair also offers a program for further education for members of disaster relief, fire-brigades, rescue, administrations and policy makers.

Fraunhofer IVI – Dept. Strategy and Optimisation presented up-to-date technologies for crises management at an own booth. In the course of the fair, Dr. Ralf Hedel had the chance to present the concept of the project EU-CIRCLE to many visitors of the Fraunhofer booth, especially to discuss possibilities of use of the modelling environment CIRP with potential end-users from municipalities and companies within the Free State of Saxony.
