The objective of this proposal is to consolidate, strengthen and test the outputs from previous European Commission (EC) Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (EAHC) funded projects;- Alerting System for Chemical Health Threats (ASHT), Chemical and Radiological Inventory of Medical Countermeasures(CARIMEC), Chemical and Radiation Risk Assessment Network(CARRA-Net), through consultation and exercises with end-users (i.e. Health Security Committee (HSC) Chemical, Biological, Radio-Nuclear (CBRN) working group) and multi-sectoral stakeholders at the European Union (EU) and Member State (MS) level. The network of risk-assessors/managers (initiated in CARRA-Net) will be further developed to operate in pilot mode during the project for activation during a transboundary chemical incident with potential public health implications.

Grounded in the extensive experience of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP on AHA), SCIROCCO aims to provide a validated and tested tool that facilitates the successful scaling-up and transfer of good practices in integrated care across European regions. SCIROCCO will specifically focus on successful local interventions (good practices) that have demonstrated significant benefits to citizens, communities and service providers and that feature moving towards community-based, integrated health and social care service models.SCIROCCO will deliver an assessment of the contextual requirements necessary for the scale-up of these interventions and the capacity of regions to adopt them. SCIROCCO will also compare the readiness of five European regions to adopt good practices in the provision of integrated care, to demonstrate the effectiveness of the tool in practice.SCIROCCO explores how matching regions that have complementary strengths and weaknesses can deliver two major benefits: a strong basis for successful twinning and coaching that facilitates shared learning and effective knowledge transfer; and practical support for the scaling-up of good practices that promote active and healthy ageing and participation in the community.Finally, SCIROCCO captures the lessons learned from twinning, coaching and knowledge transfer activities as a significant contribution to supporting the broader implementation and scaling-up of local integrated care interventions in Europe, in line with the European Commission's 'European Scaling-up Strategy in Active & Healthy Ageing'.

The project will deliver quantitative evidence to support the development of optimal procedures for dealing with a range of contaminants in mass casualty decontamination scenarios, for pan-European implementation. This will generate evidence-based guidelines on the optimum techniques for effective mass casualty decontamination.

EUROPEAN REFERENCE NETWORK OF EXPERT CENTRES IN RARE ANAEMIAS [ENERCA 3]

The main objective of ENERCA 3 is the establishment of a European Reference Network (ERN) of Expert Centres (EC) in Rare Anaemias (RA). Identify appropriate centres of expertise (Expert Centres) throughout each national territory involved in ENERCA 3 Project is one of its most important goals. The ERN will establish a link between the ECs and will serve as a platform for foster their participation respecting the national competences and rules in regard of their authorisation or recognition. Once established the ERN will be responsible of organize healthcare pathways for patients suffering from rare anaemias through the establishment of cooperation with relevant experts and exchange of professionals and expertise within country or from abroad when necessary. The ECs will include in their plans or strategies the necessary conditions for the diffusion and mobility of expertise and knowledge on order to facilitate the treatment of patients in their proximity. One of the most important tools for ENERCA activities will be the Web site (www.enerca.org), established by ENERCA 1 and consolidated by ENERCA 2. The Website will be also very useful for giving support to the use of information and communication technologies such as telemedicine where it is necessary to ensure distant access to the specific healthcare needed.

Health-Based Ventilation Guidelines for Europe [HealthVent]

The project will develop health-based ventilation guidelines for non-industrial buildings in Europe (offices, homes, schools, nursery, homes and day-care centres). They will reconcile health and energy impacts by protecting people staying in these buildings against risk factors, and at the same time taking into account the need for using energy rationally and the need for more energy efficient buildings.

The objectives of the guidelines are:

(1) target on demonstrated adverse health effects of inadequate indoor air quality and provide tangible health benefits for the building occupants and European populations;

(2) help avoid investment and energy cost of ventilation systems and rates which are not supported by evidence of health, productivity and welfare benefits; and

(3)integrate and optimize with the other EU policies that are relevant for healthy indoor air, namely source control (CPD, REACH), urban ambient air quality management (CAFÉ), energy using product (EuP) and low energy buildings (EPBD).
