The iTRACK project will host a serious gaming workshop for humanitarian actors at the TU Delft campus in the Hague. Decision-makers engaged in humanitarian interventions and emergency responses regularly work under ambiguous and hazardous conditions, which can bring various operational and security-related risks to them. In the workshop, participants will experience the challenges of multidisciplinary collaboration in disaster management. By playing a board game, they will explore the critical roles of technology, communication and coordination, and how to achieve a balance in conducting crisis response.
