The International Critical Control Rooms Alliance
The ICCRA is an independent membership organisation with a goal to become the focus and platform for mission critical control room discussion, learning, and development of proactive measures designed to create constant evolution and ensure best practice.
A WELCOME FROM THE INTERNATIONAL CRITICAL CONTROL ROOMS ALLIANCE
Critical command and control environments need to constantly adapt to the many changing factors that impact their ways of working. Only by doing so can they deliver a consistently high quality service in the most cost-effective manner. The International Critical Control Rooms Congress will bring together critical control room and supply side experts to imagine the range of challenges faced and how they may be addressed in the years ahead.
The rapid development of AI and automation, the integral role of social media and apps in modern communications, and the need to respond to ever more complex public safety and mission critical events requires us to think and act differently in how we deliver critical control room services. This year’s congress will focus on Disrupting the Control Room exploring this theme through the lenses of our four Special Interest Group areas: Operations, Technology, Environment and Ergonomics, and People.
The International Critical Control Rooms Alliance is the world’s only organisation which takes a 360 degree view on the work of end users in critical control rooms across all sectors and industries.
