The new module was piloted by the Departments of Biological Sciences, Geography and Social Anthropology during spring 2018.

The project group has concluded that the CIM module is a good tool for managing fieldwork and research cruises, with four key advantages:

  • Greater overview of participants, with an updated list of students and staff attending
  • The ability to send messages to all participants, both prior to and during fieldwork and research cruises 
  • Information related to the participants can be sent to the crisis management team if required
  • Latest information about ongoing fieldwork trip and research cruises displayed
