Update on European projects


Please find below a list of European Projects that EENA is involved with.

EmerGent Project
Social media is a serious and fast growing phenomenon for creating and maintaining social links. The convergence of social networking and mobile media technology is also shifting the way people communicate, and gain or share information, especially during emergency or crisis situations.

The EU funded EmerGent project, which will run for 3 years, will examine the positive and negative impact use of social media in emergency situations involving citizens, emergency service organisations and public authorities.

EmerGent will provide guidelines and tools on how to use social media which the emergency service organisations could use during and after emergencies in the future.

The ESENet project ended on 31 December 2014.

HeERO 2
HeERO addresses the pan-European in-vehicle emergency call service "eCall" based on 112, the common European Emergency number. For three years (January 2011 to December 2013), the nine European countries forming the HeERO 1 consortium carried out the start-up of an  nteroperable and harmonised in-vehicle emergency call system. The second phase of the HeERO project: HeERO 2 started on 1st January 2013 and ended on 31 December 2014, with 15 countries being part of the project.
