A partnership of stakeholders has developed a set of free and open tools designed to accelerate innovation in the crisis management field. These outputs include a methodology and technical infrastructure to assess the added value of new socio-technical solutions in trial situations; an online catalogue of innovative solutions matching identified gaps; a networking platform for crisis management professionals; and a network of Centres of Expertise to support the community in the use of DRIVER+ outputs.

Now completed, the legacy of the project is a powerful and diverse set of sustainable outputs for crisis management stakeholders, including practitioners, policy makers, scientific researchers and industry. These outputs were tested and developed in a series of four large-scale crisis scenario Trials and a Final Demonstration, the latter with the active participation of the Emergency Response Coordination Centre (ERCC):
