Funding scheme:CSA-CA - Coordination (or networking) actions
The improvement of the European capability to respond to everyday emergencies and guarantee the safety and security of citizens in case of major emergencies and disasters requires a significant step forward in the integration of existing systems at several levels.
The ESENet initiative aims at establishing a network of stakeholders in the Emergency Management domain that will identify, discuss and agree on needs, requirements, new technologies and best practices in responding to everyday as well as to major emergencies.
The project plans to organize a total of 8 web-meetings and 4 workshop, with all the network members invited to attend and contribute to working documents prepared by the project partners on several topics, including interoperability at all levels (from technical level to organizational) and in all types of safety and security missions (daily/ordinary and/or large scale missions as well as local or cross-border missions).
The ultimate goals of ESENet are:
• The identification of gaps in the emergency service provision chain and the collection of user requirements; the results of such activity will be a living document that will be made available to all stakeholders;
• the selection of available and/or promising technologies for tackling the identified challenges, also identifying areas where further research is needed; the project will deliver a public report;
• the analysis of organizational gaps, with suggestions and best practices at EU level about procedures, framework agreements and reorganizing suggested tasks; the results of such work will be reported in a public deliverable in form of suggestion of a roadmap to improve Emergency Services;
• the identification of available standards or areas where standards will be needed.
The project is built around the members and the ESSN (Emergency Services Staff Network) currently organised by the project partner EENA. 22 members have already confirmed in writings their interest in being part of the ESENet project
