Workshop on Roaming Messages for Effective Risk Prevention

Travellers and tourists are often unfamiliar with the emergency infrastructure and services while travelling abroad. In order to improve this situation, roaming messages, providing essential information on these issues, have proven to be a promising instrument. The aim of this workshop, which was conducted in close cooperation with the Spanish Police (Comisaria General de Seguridad Ciudadana del Dirección General de la Policia Española), was to analyze and evaluate the challenges and possibilities the key players from the public and private sectors are facing while implementing and using roaming and SMS technologies for this purpose.
