CRACKLE Staff meet with ERASMUS PLUS Project Partners in Warsaw and Copenhagen

Graham Edgar, Geoff Sallis and Di Catherwood have begun working with partners from Poland and Denmark on their recently-awarded Erasmus Plus grant. They will also travel soon to meet with other partners in the Netherlands and Belgium. The project is aimed at developing an online training tool for firefighting  professionals to test and improve their decision-making and “situation awareness”.  The award-winning research of the CRACKLE team has shown that under extreme pressure individuals may tend in one of two directions:  either making decisions on too narrow a band of information or alternately trying to take in too much information all at once. Either tendency is due to the limits of all human brains and can lead to fatal errors of judgment.
