NEXES Captures All Attentions at the EENA Conference 2016
The NEXES Action made quite the headlines at the EENA Conference 2016. No doubt the next generation emergency services are a hot topic at the moment, but to have a research and innovation action capturing all the different perspectives required to make next generation emergency services a reality is the actual game changer!
From April 6th to 8th, the NEXES innovations were broadly presented and debated, ensuing interesting dynamics with the many emergency services professionals visiting the NEXES Corner at Deveryware’s booth. Total conversation, enhanced location, improved PSAP systems and new Apps fostering improved communication between emergency services and citizens, including those experiencing disability, impairment or special needs, were at the top of the discussions, conducted by NEXES partners: the Emergency Ambulance Physicians Association (AAHD), Deveryware, the Institute of Communications and Computer Systems (ICCS), INSTA, OMNITOR, Teamnet and the University of Ljubljana. As NEXES proceeds to implement the users’ requirements into an ambitious functional system, the involvement of experts from emergency services and citizens is key to the Action’s success. And the NEXES End-Users Advisory Board is actively engaged with the ongoing NEXES developments, providing insightful experience and know-how so that the Action’s results attain the expected impact in fostering the adoption of IP-enabled technologies by emergency services.
NEXES’s participation at the EENA Conference 2016 is part of the NEXES Consortium’s dissemination effort, focusing on building awareness to the NEXES RIA and fostering the engagement of key stakeholders. It has also been a relevant opportunity to disseminate the upcoming NEXES Workshop on Accessibility, on May 19th in The Netherlands.
