About the project
The TOXI-triage, funded by the European Union’s flagship “Horizon2020” research program, intends to set up integrated and adaptive responses to toxic emergencies in case of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) threats. It seeks to deliver quicker situational awareness through various embedded sensors, drones, standoff detectors (including cameras), artificial intelligence for processing sensor signals and web-traffic from social media, and centralized command and control.
The consortium brings together European universities, ICT companies, researchers and energy companies to address chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats and develop optimized ways to prevent and mitigate the effects of a potential chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear attack. The project seeks to ensure that good health and well-being is maintained even in crisis situations, as prioritized by the UN’s SDGs.
More project information
The project addresses the operational, technological, ethical and societal dimensions of chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear response and recovery, and the economic base from which sustainable chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear and multi-use systems are derived. TOXI-triage aims to offer rapid non-invasive assessment of exposure/injury through (i) monitoring metabolic markers of injury; (ii) managing the semantic web; (iii) using aptamer-based bio-sensing and casualty-to-discharge system integration as well as (iv) addressing societal needs such as optimizing inter-cultural/ethnic messages and needs in chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear response and fostering economic impact by multiple-uses for all the project’s systems.
