New End-User Advisors Join the NEXES Community

Emergency Services Stakeholders in Turkey Value Next Generation Technologies

The NEXES Consortium, a leader in the integration of IP-based technologies in emergency services, has added seven new members to its End-Users Advisory Board.

The Izmir Police, the Izmir Metro, the EMT and Paramedic Association, the Turkish Amateur Radio Users Association, the Izmir North State Hospitals, the Association for the Prevention of Infectious Diseases and the Distance Learning Centre of the Dokuz Eylul University have expressed their interest to join the NEXES initiative and exchange valuable perspectives on how to build a reference implementation of next generation emergency services.

“We are thrilled to welcome these new End-user from Turkey to the NEXES End-users Advisory Board,” said Mr. Marco Manso, Director of Innovation at RINICOM UK and the Coordinator of the NEXES Research and Innovation Action. “All of these organisations play a particular role in times of emergency and crisis and their perspectives will make contributions to the NEXES vision. Their ideas and insights will provide further fuel for our continued growth and will support NEXES’s role as a pan-European and global reference to advanced emergency services.”

The NEXES Action ambitions to bring the new IP-based technologies to the realm of emergency services, providing total conversation, improved location and enhanced interoperability capabilities as well as to become the benchmark for next generation emergency services.

With 17 partners and a large End-users community, the NEXES Action has grown rapidly since its inception in May 2015. The early success of this Action signals a continued strong need in the marketplace for innovative and relevant solutions in next generation emergency services.

NEXES At MobiQuitous 2015

Delivering End to End Connectivity to Emergency Services

NEXES’s bold approach to mobility and end-to-end connectivity in the emergency services context was discussed during the 12th International Conference on Mobile and Ubiquitous Systems: Computing, Networking and Services (MobiQuitous 2015), organised by the European Alliance for Innovation (eai.eu) in Coimbra – Portugal, on July 23rd and 24th.

Presented by Mojca Volk and Janez Sterle from the University of Ljubljana (UL), the NEXES pilot planned for Slovenia and the NEXES 112 App for First Responders highlighted the panel session discussing emergency response and intervention management solutions before an audience of international top-quality researchers working on systems, apps and services involving mobility and ubiquitous computing.

NEXES’s participation at MobiQuitous 2015 (mobiquitous.org/2015/show/home) is part of the NEXES Consortium dissemination effort, focusing on building awareness to the NEXES RIA by getting NEXES, its ambitious goals and achievements known to the relevant target audiences. Then, the NEXES Partners will continuously feed significant stakeholders with NEXES unique features (generating differentiation awareness) that ultimately will secure the targeted audiences’ loyalty to NEXES concept, approach and vision.

NEXES At the Open Source Intelligence Dissemination Conference 2015

Engaging End-users in the Change of Emergency Services

The NEXES Consortium was invited to participate at the Open Source Intelligence Dissemination Conference 2015 to present the NEXES Vision concerning the integration of Internet-enabled technologies into the emergency services and the creation of the next generation emergency services.

The NEXES session, presented by Salvatore Corrao from the Italian National Fire Corps, was attentively followed by an audience of emergency services stakeholders and experts that were very interested to hear how the NEXES System and App aims to promote emergency services truly universal, democratic and inclusive, based on total conversation, improved location and enhanced interoperability capabilities.

Organised by the Athena, Emergent and ePoolice EU FP7 projects, with the support of the Italian National Fire Corps, the Open Source Intelligence Dissemination Conference 2015 focused on the application of open-source intelligence (OSINT) to enhance the ability and knowledge of stakeholders in appreciating its utility across a number of security-focused disciplines, such as crisis management and the detection of crime threats.

NEXES’s participation at the OSINT Dissemination Conference 2015 is not only a clear example of the cross-fertilisation effort NEXES will uphold, involving innovative research projects applied to the emergency services and security domains, but also a powerful international communication activity targeting end-users in law enforcement, fire and rescue and medical emergency and stakeholders in ministerial departments, defined within the ambitious NEXES dissemination effort to raise awareness on the NEXES Action and its added-value innovation.
