Welcome to the first newsletter from NEXES!
The NEXES RIA is a EU-funded Research and Innovation Action dedicated to validate the promising integration of IP-based communication technologies and interoperability into the next generation emergency services, so that they attain increased effectiveness and performance.
NEXES’s main innovation encompasses the use of Total Conversation capabilities in emergencies, including social media, to the benefit of citizens, including those experiencing disability or special needs, the exploitation of improved location information to rapidly and effectively identify and locate the caller and the incident site and the leverage of Internet-enabled connectivity to enhance interoperability and shared awareness among emergency services, to the benefit of a more secure society.
This paramount challenge is now undertaken by the NEXES Consortium, a team of seventeen partners of ten countries, highly skilled and experienced in emergency management, communications and service, innovation engineering and telecommunications.
The NEXES RIA is ending its eighth month of work.
In this edition of the NEXES Newsletter, we present you a selection of articles and news that reinforce the NEXES Consortium’s drive to make emergency services a truly universal, democratic and inclusive public service.
With a special focus on emergency case studies and reference scenarios, we explore how cutting-edge research and innovation activities are surpassing shortcomings in emergency services and leading to the development of the next generation emergency services.
