NEXES – An Example at the CAP Implementation Workshop

At the CAP Implementation Workshop held on September 23rd-24th 2015 at the Italian National Fire Corps Academy (Istituto Superiore Antincendi), NEXES was presented as an example of an emergency system benefitting from the implementation of the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) to empower public alarm and data exchange in emergency situations.

NEXES’s participation at the CAP Implementationcap_workshop Workshop, organised by the U.N. World Meteorological Organisation and the National Fire Brigade, Public Rescue and Civil Defence Department, is framed in the Action’s ambitious communication plan and serves the NEXES dissemination purposes of building awareness and fostering networking and engagement towards the Action’s propositions.

NEXES Discussed at The Emergency Services Show

Introducing the Huge Benefits of the Digital Age

The NEXES Action was represented by NEXES partner AIMtech at the Emergency Services Show, held on September 23rd – 24th 2015, in Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Whilst the primary focus of NEXES participation was to raise awareness to the Action before a broad audience of emergency services’ professionals, it was also possible to foster networking and engagement with relevant stakeholders. The discussion was thus centred on how NEXES brings IP-enabled communications, namely total conversation (voice, real time text, video and data) capabilities to the emergency services, for the benefit of citizens.

NEXES’s attendance to The Emergency Services Show is relevant to present the Action to the UK audience of emergency professionals, for this is one of the largest in the UK and has over 400 exhibitors from more than 37 countries and over 6000 visitors.

Organised by the High Committee for the Civil Defence, the second edition of ExpoCrise dedicated to crisis management presented the latest technical and technological advances in crisis management and communication.

As a pan-European reference of next generation emergency services, NEXES intends to revolutionise today’s crisis communications, empowering it with IP-enabled technologies and interoperability amongst emergency services and between these and the citizens. This message has been conveyed to a large audience of representatives of French emergency services and governmental decision-makers, as well as to the media and academia, during Deveryware’s participation at the second round table “Organising the crisis management: the tools revolution, the impact of social media, what new organisation?”, mediated by Mlle. Caroline Saisou, Chargée de Mission for the French High Committee for the Civil Defence.

NEXES’s participation in the sole event in France dedicated to crisis management is a communication action planned within the ambitious communication strategy defined by the NEXES Consortium to raise awareness on the NEXES RIA and its added-value innovation.

NEXES Presents Two New Advisory Board Members

The NEXES Consortium announced two new members to its End-users Advisory Board: Professor Babak Akghbar, Director of the Centre of Excellence in Terrorism, Resilience, Intelligence and Organised Crime Research (CENTRIC) and Chief Inspector Ian Thompson of the North Yorkshire Police and a member of the Executive Committee of British-APCO (British Association of Public Safety Communications Officers).

With the two new members, the NEXES End-users Advisory Board is now comprised of 32 representatives in academia, public service, industry and NGOs with expertise in emergency services, citizenship and innovation engineering. The Board members provide contributions and recommendations on how to address the opportunities and challenges of the next generation emergency services, connecting academia and industry with the evolving needs of public emergency services and of citizens, and scale NEXES’s unique value proposition.

“We believe that the members of our End-users Advisory Board are essential to help us connect with the academia, the government, the end-users and industry leaders to achieve the NEXES vision. We are thrilled to welcome top-quality specialists such as Professor Babak Akghbar and Chief Inspector Ian Thompson to our community.”, said Mr. Marco Manso, Director of Innovation at RINICOM UK and the Coordinator of the NEXES Research and Innovation Action.
