Joint Final Conference

The NIGHTINGALE project is presented at a conference in Brussels

15 JUNE 2023

From the 13th to the 15th of June, NIGHTINGALE took part in the joint final conference of three Horizon 2020 research projects: eNOTICE, PANDEM-2, and PROACTIVE. The three-day conference brought researchers, medical practitioners, first responders, and policymakers together for informative sessions and panel discussions. The main focus of the conference was the presentation of research results and innovations in the field of chemical, biological, radiation, and nuclear (CBRN) incident preparedness and response.

Several NIGHTINGALE partners participated in the event, learning from the projects’ results and discussing future cooperation opportunities. In the panel discussion on the continuation of research and advancement of crisis and emergency response, the Project Coordinator, Institute of Communications and Computer Systems (ICCS), presented the NIGHTINGALE project. Dr Eleftherios Ouzounoglou, a senior researcher at the I-SENSE research group of ICCS and a NIGHTINGALE Project Manager, gave an overview of the project and highlighted some of the technical aspects that are being developed and that will advance existing methods and tools for emergency medical response in complex and major incidents.

The presentation was followed by a panel discussion responding to the question:

Innovative CBRN technological solutions – for CBRN agents detection, identification, surveillance, monitoring, decontamination, testing and validation, and training. What are your indicators if a research or innovation implementation has been successful? Success in the market with industrial players? With practitioners? With the general public?

Representatives from across nine EU-funded projects participated in the panel discussion, which provided great insights into the ways other projects are or are hoping to measure success.

Throughout the duration of the conference, we learned a lot about the developments in CBRN civil security and preparedness. We plan to integrate these insights and new developments from other projects into our work as we continue with the next phase of NIGHTINGALE.
