The EU-NU project is funded by the European Commission and implemented jointly by CMC Finland and MSB from Sweden. The aim of the project is to enhance the existing cooperation on USAR modules between Finland and Sweden, as well as to spread the Nordic expertise in operating in cold conditions to wider EU. To support the action, two trainings have been conducted in Finland; in December 2015, approximately 100 rescue professionals from Finland and Sweden gathered to Kuopio to train joint action in the field. The exercise, consisting of 36 simulation training, was built upon a scenario where a major mine accident took place in Finland, forcing local rescue services request assistance from the European Union Civil Protection Mechanism.
In February 2016, a cold conditions training was organized in cooperation with the Jaeger Brigade in Sodankylä, Finnish Lapland. Rescue professionals from several EU countries arrived to learn how to operate and survive in snow and cold. A video from the training can be seen on CMC Finland YouTube Channel.
In addition, the project has produced the following documents:
