The second SAYSO Public Workshop successfully took place on Tuesday 4th December 2018 at the VBO-FEB in central Brussels. The event gathered the interest of 54 EU practitioners, suppliers, researchers and other stakeholders.

Participants were able to:

  • Find out the results of the SAYSO collection of EU practitioners’ requirements;
  • Provide feedback on the proposed SAYSO specifications for Situational Awareness tools matching the actual needs of civil protection practitioners and emergency responders;
  • Learn how public authorities, suppliers of innovative solutions and practitioners can benefit from EU-funded Pre-Commercial procurement (PCP).

A tradeshow session also took place with the demonstration of 6technologies to support civil protection practitioners and emergency responders. 10 EU-funded or national projects also attended and presented their work through posters and flyers.
