PANDEMRIC IN THE MEDIA!
This article from Het Belang van Limburg (only dutch) talks about PANDEMRIC and what the project is doing to foster Euregional cooperation in the case of a pandemic. Furthermore, the article talks about the tool from the Euregio Meuse-Rhine (EMR) which helps cross-border travellers to determine which measures to take and when. The link to the online tool can be found here.
THE FIRST PANDEMRIC PRODUCT IS ALMOST READY
It concerns a web application that will soon be used by the 8 dispatch centers in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. A lot of hard work has been done on the design and it is completely ready. Also, the web application is already filled with all relevant information.
This tool enables the dispatch centers to request help from each other more quickly in the event of large-scale incidents. The tool is web-based and a helpdesk is available 7 x 24 hours. Of course, the tool is also trilingual (French, German and Dutch).
Yesterday, the tool was tested by the dispatch centers in the EMR. The results will be available shortly.
We will keep you informed!
