A very important stage in the TARGET project is taking place this September. It is almost a year since the V1 Trials of the TARGET solutions and everyone is really looking to seeing the V2 developments put through their paces in the field. These upcoming Trials will be used to test, evaluate and showcase the V2 of the software and Training Contents developed during the project. The feedback we receive from the end users will take us to the final V3 of the solutions before the conclusion of the project at the end of October.
We are pleased to announce that TARGET partners will be exhibiting at the Emergency Services Show in Birmingham, UK on 19-20 September 2018. Please come and visit us on Stand V20 near the Refreshments Area in the Collaboration Zone.
