Brief Biography of Organisation:
Trilateral Research is a UK and IE-based enterprise, founded in 2004. It specialises in applied research and the provision of policy, regulatory and certification advice and recommendations for new technologies, processes, policies and systems. We take a rigorous and responsible approach to research and development, underpinned by an emphasis on privacy and security by design in research, data science, and technology development. Our research impacts a variety of disciplines, all focused on enhancing societal well-being, including (but not limited to) security and human rights, crisis and disaster management, and responsible digital transformation.
Trilateral has a long record of successful project involvement in European and international projects, including those on crisis and disaster management. This includes EU projects on pandemic crisis management and COVID-19 (e.g., STAMINA, COVINFORM), crisis management standardisation (e.g., STRATEGY, ResiStand), disaster preparedness (e.g., TACTIC), and the role of data gathering and information management for effective crisis management (e.g., IN-PREP) and on tenders related to the use of social media analysis tools for preparedness (e.g., PREP1, Comparative Review of Social Media Analysis Tools for Preparedness).
