INGENIOUS is happy to have participated in the “Capabilities and Technologies for First Responders" session held as part of the Nicosia Risk Forum on November 16th 2022 in Larnaca, Cyprus and online.
INGENIOUS was represented by ICCS and CyRIC giving an interesting presentation of the INGENIOUS Next Generation Integrated Toolkit (NGIT) and the results generated from the Integration, Testing and Validation activities of the project.
The session, which was organised and led by the H2020 Respond-A project, featured presentations from 5 more EU-funded cluster projects (Search-and-Rescue, RESCUER, ASSISTANCE, TEAMAWARE and RESPOND-A) developing innovative technologies for First Responders. An open discussion on topics common to all EU funded projects and relevant to gap analysis, end-user requirements/involvement, exploitation, sustainability, standard operational procedures, and adaptiveness of new technologies also took place. During the session, interesting insights, knowledge and best practices were shared.
The INGENIOUS Presentation is available here.
