EUROPEAN FP7 PROJECT DEVELOPS FRAMEWORK FOR INTEROPERABILITY OF EUROPEAN CRISIS AND DISASTER RESPONSE

What if a major flooding would happen here in our Great Region, threatening the border areas of Luxembourg, Belgium, France and Germany - would the public safety forces of the three countries be able to work together, communicating without any language barriers and sharing valuable information?

Answering this question is not as easy as one would hope. Efficient communication and access to critical information is a key requirement for the operations of public safety and security services in disasters. Inter-connectedness and cooperation between different rescue teams is essential for saving lives and protecting assets. Nevertheless, sharing of the available information in case of emergency between the teams from different members states is almost impossible.

In 2014, 13 actors from European research institutes, industry, small and medium sized enterprises and practitioners teamed up to develop a concept of a Common Information Space (CIS). The project, funded by the European Commission under the Framework Program 7, was led by the Austrian Institute of Technology. Initiated by Public Safety Communications Europe Forum (PSCE) in which HITEC Luxembourg’s Manager of Technology and Research Projects and Board member of PSCE, Harold Linke, played a crucial role, the project was officially kicked-off in June 2014. The EPISECC CIS concept intends to increase a pan-European interoperability of actors in public safety. EPISECC (Establish Pan-European Information Space to Enhance seCurity of Citziens) focuses on two levels of interoperability: the physical (e.g. network) and the syntactical (language) level.

LUXEMBOURG INITIATED PROJECT PRESENTED ON THE OCCASION OF ESA COUNCIL IN PARIS
Tracking and tracing of dangerous goods in the medical sector

Did you ever asked yourself what happens to your blood samples or other materials which are used in the medical sector? Most of these samples are transported via road to testing laboratories. Not many people know that a lot of these samples are dangerous goods, because they are potentially infectious. Other samples are very sensitive to temperature and need to be monitored. A new service, called DG-TRAC (Tracking & Tracing of Dangerous Goods in the Medical Sector), was set-up to increase the traceability and monitoring of medical goods during transport and thus to increase the quality of the transports as well as the safety on our roads.

On 3rd November 2016, the DG-TRAC project partners had the honour to demonstrate the service on the occasion of the ESA Council at delegate level in Paris, France. The Council is ESA's governing body and provides the basic policy guidelines within which ESA develops the European space programme.
