Deliverable 5.2 is the result of Task 5.3: evaluation of the intermediate platform. Before performance assessment indicators were defined (Deliverable 5.1) in Task 5.1 and aspects of the COBACORE platform we assessed in feedback sessions in Task 5.2. This deliverable describes the intermediate evaluation of the COBACORE platform. This evaluation was held on the 11th and 12th of June 2014 in Rotterdam. Thirty-seven individuals participated in this evaluation. Representatives from the Safety Region of Rotterdam Rijnmond, the Municipality of Rotterdam and the Netherlands and German Red Cross participated as professional users of the COBACORE platform. Students of the Hague University of Applied Sciences, UNESCO – IHE and Tilburg University participated as both affected and responding community members. This deliverable provides an introduction to the evaluation of the intermediate platform with the research questions and hypotheses in Chapter 1, an extensive description of the method and simulation environment that was used in Chapter 2, followed by a chapter on the outcome of the experiment, conclusions and recommendations in chapter 3. The Appendices provide additional/ background information on the Belfast Flood operational scenario used for the evaluation of the intermediate platform and a profile of a participating affected community member. Recommendations for further development of the COBACORE platform is provided to guide design efforts.
