In September and November 2011 two important meetings have happened. On September 5 & 6 the EMuRgency project had its kick-off meeting organized by the Open University of the Netherlands. During the meeting the partners provided a detailed presentation about their expertise, focus in the project and vision. In addition the different activities within the project have been further refined and planned. To “practice what we preach” non-medical experts participated in a short CPR training provided by the partner from the University Hospital in Aachen. Overall, the kick-off has helped all partners to define a common ground, to get to know each other better and to develop a common visiion and concrete workplan for the upcoming months and years.
On November 7 another consortium meeting has happened. This time the focus of the meeting was the administrative and financial management of the EMuRgency meeting. Nadia Thissen from the EMR Stichting has introduced the specifics of the INTERREG IVa programme and consortium members had the opportunity to ask questions. Last but not least we could take a photo of the whole consortium.
