NIGHTINGALE is a large-scale research and innovation project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme with the overarching objective to increase resilience and civil protection in Europe. It is carried out by a consortium of twenty-three partners based in eleven countries of the European Union and associated countries.
The project aims to optimise current procedures and methods and to enhance the operational capacities of emergency medical services and civil protection agencies in the event of mass casualty incidents. NIGHTINGALE will offer intelligent, integrated, and interconnected toolkit designed for emergency services. The technological solutions will be complemented with a commonly agreed operational framework that will be embedded seamlessly within the workflow.
As a significant actor in the field of trauma and emergency medicine, ESTES contributes to several research tasks that focus on triage protocols, damage control and pre-hospitalisation processes in the event of mass casualty incidents. ESTES also supports communication, dissemination, and exploitation activities of the project, which include networking with key actors from emergency and disaster medicine and identifying relevant business cases.
