Success stories

Europe faces an influx of refugees, part of the 16 million plus people worldwide experiencing protracted displacement. The EU-funded TRAFIG project developed solutions better tailored to the needs and capacities of displaced persons. The work is already helping displaced people thrive in their new homes.


Harnessing sensor technology to boost situational awareness in emergencies

Without a clear overview of the scene, first responders can be impaired and lives put at risk. By harnessing the power of sensory data, EU-funded researchers have developed ways to increase situational awareness at disaster scenes. The technology will enable emergency services to work more effectively, helping to keep Europeans safe.

Drone-based platform delivers critical support to first responders

In disaster situations, emergency teams can be hampered by confusion and a lack of communication. To address this, EU-funded researchers have developed new drone-based technology that provides situational awareness in real time. This will give first responders valuable information that can save lives.
