The DE-RISC (Digital Emergency Response Infrastructure for SoCial and Physical Safety) project is one of the building blocks, laying the foundation for the Resilient Delta institute. It will serve as an accelerator for cooperation between scientists from both universities, the policy makers working at the Municipality of Rotterdam, representatives from SME’s and international companies. Funding is requested (not yet granted) from the European Regional Development Fund, which aims to stimulate digital innovation in the private sector. By including small, medium and large enterprises into our consortium, Resilient Delta created a public-private-knowledge partnership, better known as the triple helix. The core ambition of this project aims at using big data and AI to improve the real estate construction, maintenance and daily operation of a complex or high rise building. In this project the user case is fire safety, it will kickstart the transition from working 2D to 3D with state of the art technology and correspond real-time information with the regional safety organization and fire department. All private entities related to this building will be involved in the process, by either upgrading their unused data to a valuable product for the digital twin, or by engaging all stakeholders on individual and institutional level in the co-creation of new governance, permits and best practices for fire safety.
DE-RISC uses the new building of the Erasmus Medical Center as test location. This makes DE-RISC one of the first potential projects of the Pandemics and Disaster Preparedness program that connects Resilient Delta to Health & Technology.
The consortium thus far: Technical University Delft, Erasmus University, Erasmus Medical Center, Municipality of Rotterdam, Regional Safety Department Rotterdam-Rijnmond, Royal HaskoningDHV, Urban Transition Group.
Dit project sluit aan bij het programma Digitale Stad van de Gemeente Rotterdam en het SAFE3D project (short film in Dutch)
