26 Oct The NO-FEAR project kick off, 9-11 July 2018, Novara, Italy
The NO-FEAR project kick-off meeting took place, 9-11 July 2018 in Novara, Italy. The meeting brought together the 18 NO-FEAR partners from 12 countries (Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Spain, and the United Kingdom) to share information about their organisations, discuss the NO-FEAR work plan over the next 5 years and see a presentation from the European Commission Project Officer. The NO-FEAR partners represent a combination of practitioners, industry/SMEs, and academia. The project is coordinated by a practitioner providing Disaster Medicine education, Università del Piemonte Orientale, Italy.
NO-FEAR is a 5-year (June 2018 – May 2023) Coordination and Support Action project that will bring together a pan-European and beyond network of emergency medical care practitioners, suppliers, decision and policy makers to collaborate and exchange knowledge, good practices, and lessons learned. Members of the network will have the opportunity to work together and collaborate to develop a common understanding of the innovation potential that fills operational gaps and pinpoint areas for future research. This multi-disciplinary, multi-national, and multi-sectorial collaboration will be supported by virtual tools, including the NO-FEAR platform and networking events (e.g., workshops, demonstrations, exercises) every 6 months.
