Advisory Board

The consortium has formed an external Advisory Board of experts from other medical first responder organisations and technology experts in the field of MED1stMR. The Advisory Board assists the project team by surveying its progress and by bringing in expertise through expert discussions, workshops, review of project results and discussion on project objectives. This will ensure a broader pan-European multi-cultural and multi-national dimension when developing MED1stMR.
