The University of Jyväskylä presented TOXI-triage project at the European Researchers' Night on Friday 29 September 2017.
TOXI-triage participated in the Resilience Conference 2017, on 20-21 September: ‘Responding to Complex Threats: Floods, Blackouts,and Hybrid Attacks’.
Paul Thomas presented TOXI-triage in the Session ‘Research Methodological Approaches’ and the TOXI-triage display generated interest in the project.
Ambition is the key event for anybody involved in the worldwide emergency preparedness, resilience & response (EPRR) community.
Ambition 2017 will provide professionals from Government departments, the NHS, councils, local resilience forums, ambulance trusts, fire and police organisations and specialist agencies with the unique opportunity to meet, network and debate the latest challenges facing the EPRR community today.
TOXI-triage had its own booth, stand number: 2B51, sponsored by some of our commercial partners.
TOXI-triage partners participated at a workshop on standardisation needs and opportunities organised in the framework of the H2020 ResiStand project. The event took place at the CEN/CENELEC (EU standardisation body) in Brussels. The audience comprised of end-users/practitioners, academics/research organization as well as SMEs/industrial partners.
The objectives of the workshop were:
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.
The TOXI-triage project was presented at the the IABR breath summit, organized by the International Association of Breath Research. This event took place from 14th September to 16th September 2016 at the ETH Zurich Honggerberg campus in Zurich, Switzerland. The summit covered areas like gas phase analysis - bacterial cells, infections, pathogens, Electronic nose, Engineering solutions, Cellular and molecular level in vitro studies.
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.
The TOXI-triage project was presented at the 3rd meeting of the community of users on disaster risk and crisis management on 29th February 2016 in Brussels.
