Preparation phase
in the Netherlands

As in the other two trials, two dry runs and the actual trial execution were carried out as defined in the planning phase. 

Technical Integration Meeting (TIM)
The trial committee, representatives of the selected solution providers and practitioners from various disciplines met for the first time at the SRH premises in The Hague. The aim of this meeting was to get to know each other, to validate the scenario / baseline, to get to know the solutions and their possible integration - technically and in terms of content - and to start the development of the innovation line.

Dry Run 1
During dry run 1 all participating solutions were set-up, connected with the test-bed and tested in a technical play-through based on sequence and workflow diagrams. Needs for changes and open issues were identified as well as the solutions training for DR2 and trial was planned. Scenario wise all trial participants were briefed on the script. The feasibility of the play of the scenario in table-top form based on swimming lanes was checked as well as needs for changes identified. At trial management level all participants were trained on T4. A first readiness review on the trial realization was conducted. The planning of DR2 and T4 was set up.

Dry Run 2
Main objectives of dry run 2 were the final checks of the solutions set-up, their test-bed connectivity as well as the trainings of both: the practitioners and the observers. A rehearsal of all trial sessions was conducted in order to validate the scenario script. The interviews for the baseline were held. At trial management level the facility, the whole set-up, the roles as well as responsibilities were finally checked. Last preparations for the trial were identified.

Trial Execution
The trial execution was completed in five days. The first day was a preparation day where the complete setting was set up and tested. On the second day all trainings for the practitioners as well as for the observers were carried out. Days 3 and 4 were the actual execution days of the innovation line. On one day the two blocks of the threat phase were played through, on the other the two blocks of the impact phase. The last day was scheduled for debriefing and evaluation. A total of 145 people took part in the trial, groups into practitioners, observers, solution providers, trial committee members, trial support staff, consortium members and visiting guests.
