Response to crisis often reveals organisational and technological shortcomings,
which threaten community recovery. It is imperative to develop human-centred
technologies that take into account actual real world practices of affected
populations and responders.
COMRADES aims to empower communities with intelligent socio-technical
solutions to help them reconnect, respond to, and recover from crisis
situations.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020
research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 687847

Goals of COMRADES
 Community Resilience
Providing intelligent Information and Communication
technologies to boost community resilience, by
increasing the ability of a community to take collective
actions, and to utilise available resources to self-
organise and respond to crises.
 Community Engagement
Platform will be designed and created bottom-up by
communities. Project will run several co-design and
engagement events with communities, along with
theoretical research.
 Informativeness of Citizen Reports
During crises, a very large number of messages are
often posted on various social media platforms by
using the hashtags dedicated to the crises at hand.
COMRADES will produce a set of automatic filters, to
efficiently and intelligently identify the messages of
sufficient relevance and value.
 Content and Source Validity Assessment
Falsified crises and emergency reports are amongst the
biggest concerns of humanitarians and communities
towards using social media content during crisis.
COMRADES will develop methods to help responders
with assessing the validity of content and its source
and also provide responders with means for alerting
the community through the COMRADES platform and
social media of unreliable content and information
sources currently circulating.
 Emergency Events
COMRADES aims to develop tools and algorithms for
automatically and accurately detecting, modelling,
and matchmaking emergency events.
 Participatory community innovation during crises
 The services and platform will be open source using
open and linked data, thus facilitating the extension
of the platform to other application areas.
 The COMRADES platform will be accessible over the
Web and mobile devices.
Active citizen participation
 The platform will encourage community-wide partici-
pation, by enabling local (communities in crisis zones)
and remote (digital activists and responders) individuals
and communities to come together and share knowledge
through their crises reports (community reporters),
to produce and access filtered and quality collective
information, and to be connected with others based on
emergency needs and offers.
 COMRADES will involve citizens at two levels:
 By engaging multiple communities in the require-
ments, design, and evaluation tasks and
 By producing a platform to be primarily used by
the citizens, to help their communities and fellow
citizens. The platform will be based on Ushahidi; a
common platform for crises mapping, developed in
collaboration with iHub.
Communities
COMRADES will engage with three types of specific
communities that are core to effective resilience efforts:
 Activists (platform deployers): individuals and
groups of people who set up instances of the
Ushahidi platform.
 Responders: communities that organise and
coordinate resources and provide expertise when
the Ushahidi platform is deployed.
 Reporters: communities who report on crisis.

The platform will be based on Ushahidi; a common platform for crises mapping, developed in collaboration with iHub. Communities COMRADES will engage with three types of specific communities that are core to effective resilience efforts:  Activists (platform deployers): individuals and groups of people who set up instances of the Ushahidi platform.  Responders: communities that organise and coordinate resources and provide expertise when the Ushahidi platform is deployed.  Reporters: communities who report on crisis.
