The goal of BroadEU.net is to assist in the establishment of the EU Critical Communication System (EUCCS) to realise a new pan-European Operational Mobility capability: the ability for public safety responders to:
Our society faces increasingly complex hazards and insecurity.
Our Police and Emergency services work together tirelessly to keep us safe in our daily lives. But disasters don’t respect borders and as responders move around, technology is not keeping up.
Their missions are critical. They need Mission Critical Mobile Communication.
Responders need better technology that is fit for purpose, works anywhere, is secure, reliable, and trustworthy. Geopolitical boundaries should not be limitations when cross-border and pan-European operations can keep society safer.
EC Directorate General for Migration and Home Affairs – DG Home – and experts from EU Member states are leading the way to establish the EU Critical Communication System (EUCCS).
EUCCS will make Operational Mobility possible. Responders will be able to carry out their operations wherever they are, whenever they need to and cooperate with whoever they should.
BroadEU.net will provide the support needed to prepare the technology, application eco-system and procedures for use of the EU Critical Communication System.
BroadEU.net will work towards establishing EUCCS. It will involve experts from most EU members states and Schengen countries to:
response to major crises like the Turkish Earthquake that bring responders from the world together in one place.
BroadEU.net will trial Mission Critical mobile technology and procedures, it will also consider what policy might be needed. DG Home have created a Mission Critical Communication Expert Group (MCCG) to work towards supporting legislation that will be needed at the European level to support establishment of EUCCS. Experts from ALL EU member states and Schengen countries are involved. BroadEU.net will work alongside the MCCG to advise on technical matters.
