Pan-European Emergency App Interoperability Project Begins
Wednesday, September 12, 2018 | Comments

The pan-European project allowing cross-border interconnections of emergency apps kicked off in Madrid 11 September.

In a Europe where people frequently travel across borders, an app from country X does not work in country Y. The Pan-European Mobile Emergency App (PEMEA) is a technical architecture that allows emergency apps to interconnect with each other. As a result, an app from one country can be operational in another. People need to download the app of their country of residence; it will serve them anywhere in Europe.

PEMEA is already a European standard, but the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) said there is distance between theory and practice. EENA joined forces with Beta 80 Group and Deveryware to launch real-world deployments, making PEMEA a reality.

After a call for applications, the following successful applicants were announced:
* The Zachranka App, Czech Republic
* mySTART+, France
* 1-1-2 Suomi, Finland
* 1-1-2 Where Are You, Italy
* Smart 1-1-2 Mobile, Monaco
* 1-1-2 App NL, the Netherlands
* Emergency App from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia
* SOS Deiak, Basque Country, Spain
* 1-1-2 Región de Murcia , Murcia, Spain
* My 1-1-2, Spain
* Omnitor App, Sweden
* SOS Alarm, Sweden

Participants met to define the next steps that will lead to emergency apps being interconnected across borders.
