CrisisTech - Where innovation meets public safety
A bit rusty on what the CrisisTech programme stands for? Here it is in a nutshell: The CrisisTech incubator is a start-up programme created and run by EENA. The virtual incubator will provide content and mentoring to start-ups from around the world active in the fields of emergency services, public safety and crisis management.
Start-ups joining the programme
We are happy to announce that the first wave of successful applicants has been selected. Ten start-ups will work together with EENA, top-level mentors and leaders from around the world to transform their innovative ideas and take them to the next level. Drones, IoT & wearables, Next Generation 112, apps, public warning, telemedicine, crowdsourcing. CrisisTech has it all... Welcome to all of them!
Facebook becomes official sponsor
And the exciting news just keep on coming: Facebook becomes an official sponsor of the programme! EENA wants to thank the Facebook team for the support.
