Defining the Operational Test site in Albania

Albania is classified as an operational test site in BRIGAID project and thus, testing is expected to be a core activity for the CoI.

NTPA is planning to organize testing/promotion activities for BRIGAID innovation product in a potential test site in Albania.

Ideally, it is expected that these activities will be organized on behalf of BRIGAID project and to be attended by: BRIGAID partners, innovators, national end-users, companies, research units (public and private), universities representatives as well as students.

An important point will be promoting/marketing these test events. This will be undertaken by publishing the event in the NTPA’s electronic platform and informing the current list of contacts about the agenda and the program. These events are intended to be livestreamed and this will be accompanied by other dissemination actions.

  • Albania, as an operational test site would be an attractive environment to demonstrate innovations from BRIGAID partners. In this kind of activity NTPA will contribute in organization and dissemination. NTPA will identify and invite institutions, companies interested for business opportunities developing as well as individuals, universities interested for further researching.
  • In the framework of BRIGAID project, NTPA plans to organize workshop/s with a specific thematic scope to promote BRIGAID and its innovations products, e.g. specifying in more details the usage of some products. In this workshop/s we expected to invite project innovators as well as national innovators. Furthermore, this organization we expected to be attended by representative of civil emergency, administrative unit’s representative, universities representative, research units and enterprises.
