A Brussels-based European not-for-profit organisation with a large network of members specialized in medical services and first aid, social care, international aid and disaster relief is looking to join a consortium for the H2020 Security call topics, and in particular Technologies for 1st Responders SU-DRS02-2018-2019-2020. The organisation has proven expertise in projects related to emergency medical services, elderly care, and cybersecurity for hospitals; members could also be involved.



The Brussels-based membership organisation founded in 2000 brings together 16 national charity organisations active in medical services and first aid, social care, international aid, disaster relief and youth work. As a European-wide network of national charity organisations, they have extensive experience in activities such as awareness raising, communication and dissemination, and networking. The organisation is frequently involved in large-scale Horizon 2020 projects such as iProcureSecurity, SOCIALCARE, SecureHospitals.eu in roles like dissemination and communication, stakeholder mapping, awareness raising through policy discussion, access to public and private institutions.

They are also involved in the collection of data for research, have experience leading work packages, and can involve their members active in field work in support roles or as consortium members. The member organisations, which are operational organisations working on the ground, teach first aid to the public, run ambulance services, manage hospitals and retirement homes, care for the elderly and for handicapped people, lead civil protection activities. Their expertise in all these fields can be used for collaborative projects.

The organisation is looking for a research cooperation agreement in order to join an existing consortium.

The organisation would also be open to discuss participation in other open Security calls such as SU-DRS01-2018-2019-2020, SU-DRS03-2018-2019-2020 or SU-INFRA01-2018-2019-2020 depending on the topic and the profile sought.

Advantages & innovations
