A fire at the agency of Deutsche Telekom in Siegen on 21 January 2013 led to the suspension of numerous communication channels. KontiKat takes these situations into account and investigates the continuity and continuity management of companies and civil society.

  • How can citizens connect to each other and organize help, e.g. via social media, in disaster situations?
  • How can small and medium-sized enterprises connect to each other and mutually support each other in emergencies? (business continuity management)

KontiKat executes studies with the population as well as small and medium-sized enterprises, develops concepts and prototypes and tests them in practice.
