In an era characterized by unpredictability and increasingly interconnected systems, crisis management becomes a formidable challenge. This paper introduces the PAIRS project (06/2021 - 05/2024), an ongoing research initiative funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection, aiming to enhance crisis management through AI-based smart crisis management services. Building on artificial intelligence (AI) and large-scale data, PAIRS empowers a shift from reactive to proactive crisis management in organizations spanning multiple sectors, including civil protection, healthcare, production & supply chains, and energy. The PAIRS consortium, a multidisciplinary collaboration of eleven industry and academic partners, explores the use of smart crisis management services to effectively manage the complexity and scale of modern crises, ensuring fast recovery and improved resilience. This paper provides a comprehensive overview of the PAIRS project, outlining its objectives, work packages, and anticipated outcomes. A central focus is the role of conceptual modeling from both process and product perspectives within PAIRS, with specific emphasis on the current state of work in modeling crisis scenarios across various domains.
