Whether you’re interested in the NO-FEAR network or a long-standing member, the podcast is a chance to hear from participants in their own words about NO-FEAR! In this episode, Professors Daniele Gui and Paloma Miravet discuss medical responses to COVID-19 and NO-FEAR’s role in connecting practitioners and suppliers from around the globe.
The podcast was recorded as part of the #MeetNOFEAR campaign, which showcases NO FEAR’s partners’ contributions to fighting the pandemic and introduces its global network of first responders to the public. The project’s activities are presently geared towards improving responses to COVID-19. Recent webinars have brought together worldwide frontline responders to discuss lessons learned and good practices related to the psycho-social impact of wearing personal protective equipment (PPE), safety considerations for nursing homes, and ventilation techniques.

Our networks work together to develop a common understanding and to enhance the response to security-related incidents. The NO-FEAR project seeks to harness the rich experience of our members and leverage our network to improve the exchange of good practices and information in Europe and beyond.
