Today and tomorrow the first workshop of the AlpDIRIS project will be held in Ljubljana (Slovenia). The project, funded by the DG-ECHO, aims at enhancing the cooperation between Italy (Friuli Venezia Giulia region) and Slovenia regarding alpine search and rescue, especially referring to communication and data exchange. The other members of the project are HITEC (coordinator), the Civil Protection of Friuli Venezia Giulia Region and the Slovenian authority for disaster management (URSZR – Administration for Civil Protection and Disaster Relief).
During the workshop the partners will discuss the next steps of the project and the practical ways of collaboration between the industrial partners and the representatives of end-users, in order to create a technological solution that meets the practitioners’ needs.
The meeting will be also a team-building opportunity for the partners, which will be able to prepare the ground for a fruitful collaboration.
