From 20 March to 7 April 2017, the CRIMARIO project will organise a train the trainer course for 12 professionals from Comoros and Madagascar to provide them with expertise on maritime data visualization. Thanks to this course, Madagascar and Comoros will have their own trainers who will in turn enhance the skills within their national administrations.
These professionals belonging to civilian and military agencies, have been carefully selected after following a first cycle of training and passed control tests. During the first week, a trainer, seconded from the French Navy, will introduce them to adult education; followed by weeks 2 and 3 where they will be perfected on maritime data visualization, and discover the tools to perform effectively their role as trainers.
EU CRIMARIO and Regional Maritime Information Fusion Centre (RMIFC), which both share the exchange of maritime information at the heart of their activities, help to raise awareness among maritime authorities about regional cooperation. Concretely, the RMIFC collects and analyses maritime information on a continuous basis, with a view to anticipating risks and threats in the Western Indian Ocean. For its part, CRIMARIO will soon make available to the partner countries a web portal called IORIS which will be dedicated to real-time maritime information sharing and incident management at sea, both at national and regional level.
