[Brussels, BE] – The 13 & 14 February Kick-off Conference marked the start of a new and challenging R&D project in which we are involved.
Three nations: Romania, Russia and the United States of America co-chair the “Development of a Multi-national Telemedicine System” (MnTS) project embedded in the NATO-Russia Council and financially supported by the NATO Science for Peace and Security Programme.

The three year project aims at developing operational systems and both technical and operational standards on the use of telemedicine (TMED) for use during major emergencies required international collaboration for the medical operations (MEDOPS).

Luc ROMBOUT from CEMAC is one of very few national experts not belonging to one of the three primary partner counties, invited to bring his expertise to the project. He is member of the Governance Committee, one of the three committees in this project (the others being the Medical Committee and the ICT Committee).

The main tasks of the Governance Committee are the development of the Concept of Operations (CONOPS), the development of functional characteristics and further down in the project the development and assessment of a TMED exercise.
