Second Practitioner workshop

We would like to invite you to our upcoming STEPWISE practitioner workshop, hosted by Crisisplan, BV in Leiden, the Netherlands.

The two-year STEPWISE project is funded by the European Commission’s Internal Security Fund – Police Action Grant. It aims to deliver an innovate platform to support the cooperation, coordination an cross-sectoral preparedness of Law Enforcement Agencies and their partners (public and private) involved in the design and protection of public spaces.

Using STEPWISE, security professionals can perform the following activities:

  1. Assessing vulnerability of public spaces
    1. What types of threats are we exposed to?
  2. Creating innovative security plans
    1. How can we minimize our exposure?
  3. Devising effective response plans
    1. How would we respond to a particular event?
  4. Assessing plans against various threat situations
    1. Does our plan work well?
  5. Training in Virtual Reality: improving readiness of first responders in a joint operation set in a mock-up environment

Your role in the workshop would be to test the beta release version of the system and share your feedback. STEPWISE is a user-driven project, seeking continuous input from practitioners to ensure it is an innovative platform that improves on current assessment and planning practices

We hope you will join us! Please inform us of your availability by contacting Maureen Weller at or +31 (0) 71 5730 551.
