5th Meeting of the Community of Users on Safe, Secure and Resilient societies (Brussels)

10/Oct/2016

The TOXI-triage project was presented at the 5th Meeting of the community of users on safe, secure and resilient societies - Focus on CBRN on 10th October 2016 in Brussels.

Strengthening capacities in disaster risk and crisis management and improving resilience in CBRN-E (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive) and natural and man-made disaster management represent key EU policy and research challenges.

Mental health surveillance after the terrorist attacks in Paris

The terror events in Paris in November, 2015, and elsewhere remind us of the substantial consequences that violent events can have for a population's mental health. Although effective approaches exist for treating these consequences, no systematic attempts have been made to identify populations at risk early on to expeditiously mitigate them. Social media could help identify populations in need during and after disasters.

25th International Society for Ion Mobility Spectrometry (ISIMS) (Boston)

28/Jul/2016

A significant output of the project ‘Ion mobility applications in CBRN crises’ was presented by project partners. The ambitious programme of combined ion mobility components was presented and encompassed: payloads for remote piloted airborne systems; emergency medicine applications for acute toxicity and R/N injury; and, environmental forensics and decontamination surveys. The proposition of multi-use capability as a potential for a significant increase in the every-day use and utility of ion mobility spectrometry was explored.
