CLAW 2020

No other year has shown how important crisis management preparation is as 2020. We have all had to deal with an ongoing crisis, which asked for a huge amount of creativity, mental resilience and patience. Maybe some of you are already completely done with the concept of crisis. However, now is also a great time to put in practice what we learned from so far, during CLAW 2020, the crisis management event for the GÉANT community on 1 December 2020. It will be a day filled with top notch training, a keynote that will leave you smiling and a fun exercise. And this year you can attend the whole thing online!

This year, the programme will consist of one day, instead of the usual two. We will begin with a keynote by Anna Wilson (HEAnet), who, last year, gave another unforgettable keynote about the lessons learned from crisis management during 9/11. This year, she will regale us with a story of another airplane-related crisis, but one with a happy ending this time, to see what we can learn from a crisis averted.

The the day will focus on three parallel, interactive workshops about:

  • Time Management and How to Triage Info
  • Creative Problem Solving
  • How to Deal With the Media

A maximum of 30 people will be allowed into each workshop, to make the experience as interactive as possible.

We will end the day with a short crisis exercise, to test what you learned. It will be a lighter version of the exercise you would normally experience at the CLAW event in person. So this time it will hopefully be a little bit less stressful and a bit more fun. It will be a continuation of the story of the crisis in Guilder, so people who attended CLAW previously (see the clip below for a glimpse of that exercise) might have a slight advantage.
