EU Plug In eXercise (PIX)

Exercise Overview

The exercises are so-called “PlugIn Exercises”. A corresponding number of teams should “dock” on an existing exercise and try out all processes – from deploying, arrival in the country, the inclusion of exercises up to relocating. Thus, the entire course of a disaster cycle is played through – from the beginning of a disaster, the national assistance, the request for international assistance, the entry and the arrival of international teams in the country concerned up to the relocation practiced

The Exercise Objective:

The PIX was designed, planned, conducted and evaluated in close cooperation with the European Commission and the hosting organisations. The PIX provided real life circumstances to test and learn for international activations of the mechanism, including the interactions of EU- modules EUCPT (including TAST) and UNDAC. Specific focus on the broader emergency response community including humanitarian and other relevant international actors, also considering civil/military relations. PIX splits into two sub-exercises, the two PIX were conducted in the Caribbean with the Royal Dutch Navy as main contributor in September 2019.

Lot3 – HNS TTX

Exercise Overview

The exercises are so-called Table Top Exercises (TTX)  / staff exercises on “Host Nation Support“, focusing on in-depth training of the key personnel. It covers the entire course of a disaster cycle – from the beginning of a disaster, national assistance, the request for international assistance, entry, transit and the arrival of international teams in the affected country to the relocation.

Exercise Framework:

Cooperation between all civil protection actors involved in emergency management so that any international assistance can be integrated quickly and effectively within the local emergency response mechanisms.

The Host National Support (HNS) Guidelines aim at assisting and supporting the affected participating state to receive international assistance in the most effective and efficient manner, whether in the preparedness or disaster response phases.

Exercise Objective:

The objective of the HNS TTX is to practice emergency response structures at strategic and operational levels, and improve inter-institutional co-operation in the area of Host Nation Support, also through Standard Operating Procedure (SOPs). The ultimate objective is to remove as much as possible any foreseeable obstacles to international assistance. This ensures that disaster response operations proceed smoothly.

Within the project, three HNS TTX will be conducted –

  • in Austria/Eisenerz (is conducted 21.-24.05.2019)
  • in Albania/Mirdita (is conducted 02.-05.07.2019)
  • finally in Ghana/Accra (is planned 03.-06.12.2019)

TTX1 Exercise Participants (Austria):

The participants were 15 experts from Austria and 25 members from 12 Nations (Ghana, Spain, France, Norway, Italy, Poland, Greece, Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Estonia, Slovenia).

Security and resilience for the gas network

SecureGas is a Research Project in the EU Framework Program H2020 for Research and Innovation, aiming to strengthen the security and resilience of the European Gas Network.

The gas network is complex by nature and highly interconnected. It crosses borders, utilizes a variety of different transportation pipelines, and is served by numerous diverse storage arrangements. All this complexity makes it a relevant example of Critical Infrastructure (CI) vulnerable to disruption by natural disasters, accidents, cyber-attacks, malicious behaviour, criminal activity or terrorism.

How the SecureGas Consortium will contribute to the strengthening of the European gas network through research and development, is outlined in the first press release of the italian project coordinator RINA. We are happy to be one of 21 partners in the multidisciplinary SecureGas Team. For more Information about this EU Project please click here.
