Call for proposals — Civil protection mechanism exercises 2012/C 147 Closed!


The specific objective of this call of proposals is to improve civil protection preparedness and response to all kinds of emergencies, including marine pollution, chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear emergencies, as well as combined emergencies and emergencies simultaneously affecting a number of countries (inside or outside the EU) by providing a testing environment of established and/or new operational concepts and procedures of the Mechanism and a learning opportunity for all actors involved in civil protection assistance interventions under the Civil Protection Mechanism.


Eligible projects to be co-financed under this call for proposals will comprise one of the following types of civil protection exercises:

  • Full Scale Exercises (FSE), involving a sufficient number of the various categories of the training programme target group, necessarily including deployment of intervention teams. It is expected that the exercise is preceded by a tabletop exercise (TTE), and includes a command post exercise part.
  • Command Post Exercises (CPE), with a minimum and focused deployment in the field of a number of the categories comprising the target group of the training programme. It should be noted that the requirement of a minimum deployment in the field distinguishes the above command post exercises from the ones organised by the Commission as part of the CECIS training, the latter being "pure" command post exercises with no deployment in the field.
  • Table top exercises or other type of discussion based exercises as deemed suitable to achieve the set objectives.
