Abstract [en]

With climate change, the frequency and spread of wildfires have intensified globally, bearing disastrous impactson wildlife, the economy, and human well-being. Efforts on broad fronts are required, including proactive publicparticipation. However, studies related to citizen engagement in the context of wildfire management remainlimited. Therefore, there is a need for further studies in this area. This paper reports on ongoing work conductedin the context of an H2020 project called SILVANUS. The study investigates the methods, practices, needs andchallenges related to citizen engagement in wildfire management. The authors have developed a tentative citizenengagement framework, and preliminary results related to citizens' needs and challenges are presented. The studyidentifies relevant topics, training contents, and methods that can be used for public engagement in wildfiremanagement. The paper contributes towards designing future engagement modalities, technologies and trainingmaterials related to wildfire management and potentially even other crises.

Abstract [en]

Digitalization has transformed the public sector and ICT has enabled the pooling of emergency response resources. Here, we explore and compare three cases of cross-sector collaboration: co-location, co-use of resources, and semiprofessionals as first responders. Identified opportunities include shared facilities and equipment and a positive attitude toward the new collaboration. Challenges include undefined roles, responsibilities, difficulties in prioritizing among ordinary and new tasks in resource-strained organizations, and lack of legislation and agreements. Reported needs are related to improved training and joint exercises and to trauma support and basic supplies, e.g., blankets, reflective vests, and warning triangles. ICT suggestions included, e.g., systems for errand handling, joint assessment of information, status and acknowledgment of available and dispatched resources, and smartphone-based dispatch management. The emerging collaborations can be seen as hybrid forms of government and network governance. Network governance may thus support the development of their institutional aspects but needs to be complemented with practical elements relating to the emergency response context. We also argue that ICT as a key factor enabling collaborations must receive more attention in network governance, which is currently the case.

Abstract [en]

We describe in this extended abstract the emergent, multi-disciplinary research project CiLC-S – Crowdsourcing Long COVID Sweden. The information science related part of the project aims to explore i) information needs and strategies of persons afflicted by long term health problems after a COVID-19 infection, and ii) alternative digital methods for inclusive, safe and efficient data collection for research and social response in the COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the project and share some early ethical and methodological experiences as a foundation for discussions of current and future possibilities for information science research to respond to individual and societal information needs in the COVID-19 pandemic and similar large-scale social crises through innovative research questions and data collection methods.
