What was the aim of these events?
EENA Members' workshop
The event aimed at fostering the sharing of experience, best practices and ideas in the emergency services field. The participants worked in small groups with the objective to produce technical, operational and legal requirements. The event also provided the attendees an opportunity to discuss regulatory and policy issues.
|The workshops' presentations and content material are available HERE.|
"Meet Your MEP" event
The event was a unique occasion for EENA Members to conclude the debate of the previous days and for the representatives of the European emergency services and public authorities to submit the workshop recommendations to the Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) of their home country. This was done through discussion tables with the aim to improve the quality of emergency services in the European Union for all citizens.
These events welcomed about 100 EENA members composed of representatives operating in emergency services, ministries, national regulatory authorities, universities and research institutes, solution provider companies and including politicians at European level.
