The main objective of the A-TEAM project is to improve the learning process
in complex, technical domains, using the example of technological
emergency management. Improved learning is achieved by integrating
information technology (dynamic simulation, visualisation, GIS, expert
systems and case-based reasoning) within an innovative didactic framework that
fully exploits the potential of multi-media information systems.
Improved efficiency and effectiveness of the learning and teaching process in
complex technical domains difficult to cover with traditional didactic methods
is seen as an important contribution toward a technological and information
The project will develop and test a new approach to advanced technical training
using an integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and
dynamic simulation modeling to
create fully interactive multi-media content within a real-time
knowledge-based system framework for the domain of emergency management
applications. The underlying client-server architecture supports easy access
in Intranet/Internet distributed systems.
Nine partner institutions from six countries cooperate in A-TEAM, providing a
rich combination of academic excellence, software engineering, and practical
safety management experience.
