Project Slándáil is an EU funded project (607691) led by Trinity College Dublin which aims to improve the use of social media in disaster management. Any major natural disaster such as an earthquake or a flood will generate thousands of social media posts. The challenge for responders is to filter the useful information, analyse it, and determine a suitable response. Slándáil is one of a kind in that it merges an emergency management system with a social media monitoring tool.

Stillwater’s role has been to assist with communications in the project. We’ve led two reports: Communications Report and Trust-Building through Communications in Disaster Management and will continue to work with the technology partners and end-users to test and review the system.
