University of Loughborough has organised an special event to showcase some outstanding work carried out in the framework of TOXI-triage project, which will revolutionise the way emergency services across the world tackle life threatening chemical, biological, radioactive, or nuclear (CBRN) incidents.
This event was an opportunity to hear from the people behind the project. TOXI-Triage brings together experts from across Europe to strengthen our readiness for a catastrophic event, by developing new ways to give sound medical care to CBRN casualties amid the confusion, disorder and danger such an incident would bring. In an age where CBRN emergencies, both accidental and deliberate, pose a real threat to society, we are creating new integrated systems and technologies to aid first responders and ultimately save lives.
A large number of potential funders, policy makers and contacts at ministerial level attended the event, and hands-on demonstrations of TOXI-Triage technology were provided during the evening. It represented a fantastic opportunity to demonstrate the project technologies to potential users, buyers and other interested parties.
