EU Emergency Services Workshop 2011
Once a year, the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) organises the EU Emergency Services Workshop that gathers European emergency services, public authorities and industry representatives. This 3-day conference aims at fostering sharing of best practices between the relevant stakeholders. In 2011, the event also hosted the Next Generation Emergency Services Workshop (ESW8 - an international emergency service standards coordination group) that looks at Next Generation, IP-based emergency calling, with a focus on coordination between different specific efforts and standards development organisations (SDOs). The Workshop gathered around 250 participants, including around 100 emergency services and public authorities' representatives from more than 30 European countries.
