NO-FEAR relies on its strong, collaborative network of trusted stakeholders:

  • The practitioners, decision and policy-makers network provides expertise to identify requirements, needs, and operational gaps in the Emergency Medical System.
  • The NO-FEAR supplier and academia network includes members from industry, academia, and research fields, who innovate to enhance response capability for security-related incidents.
The NO-FEAR interactive portal serves as a unique online dynamic catalogue of the identified gaps, needs and trends as well as the technological tools and research-technological projects related to EMS. In addition to perusing the catalogue, you can also contribute with your expertise by adding your knowledge to the catalogue to share with the online community.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 786670.
