Welcome to the EMuRgency project
The project "EMuRgency: New approaches for resuscitation support and training" is focusing on increasing awareness about the problem of cardiac arrest in the Euregio Rhine-Meuse and finally increasing survival rates.
To reach this goal the consortium members develop, evaluate and implement a notification system for volunteers that builds on earlier prototypes in the region (e.g. SMS-Retter or AED-Alert). A range of targeted edcuational products are developed. Apart from ‘classic' e-learning content, innovative learning scenarios will be developed using mobile devices and game patterns. A dedicated training concept for secondary schools will be developed and evaluated within a cross-border school network. Ambient information displays will be used to reach a broad public in the region.
The consortium combines medical expertise with expertise from technology-enhanced learning and computer science.The project is led by the Centre for Learning Sciences and Technologies of the Open University of the Netherlands. Other consortium members are: Universitätsklinikum Aachen, RWTH Aachen, Maastricht University, Ziekenhuis Oost-Limburg (ZOL), K.U.Leuven, CHR Citadelle (CHR) and CECOTEPE ASBL.
The project is financed by the European Regional Development Funds, regions from the Euregio Rhine-Meuse and the participating institutions.
