SIMIT (Integrated Civil Protection System for the Italo-Maltese Cross-Border Area) is a €2.5 million Strategic Project funded by the Italia-Malta 2007-2013 Operational Programme under Priority Axis II - Environment, Energy and Risk Prevention.  The lead partner is the Regional Civil Protection Department of Sicily, while the other four partners are the Universities of Palermo and Catania, the Civil Protection Department of Malta and the University of Malta. SIMIT is working towards the establishment of an integrated system which will facilitate the evaluation, forecasting, prevention and mitigation of losses from geological hazards affecting the Sicily Channel. This is being done through a virtual common operations room, comprising efficient networking and  a dedicated portal for rapid exchange of information.  It will also concentrate on the dissemination of a culture of risk awareness and emergency management procedures.
