SYNERGISE was present at the HNPW 2024, held in a hybrid format from 29 April to 10 May 2024. The first week (29 April to 3 May) took place remotely, while the second week (6 to 10 May) was organized face-to-face at the CICG in Geneva.

This significant event invited more than 60 humanitarian networks and partnerships to hold their meetings and organize joint sessions across nine Areas of Common Concern (AOCC) for inter-network collaboration, which included Accountability to Affected Population, Anticipatory Action, Climate Crisis, Emergency Response in a Pandemic, Inclusion, Integrating Security Risk Management in Humanitarian Action, Localization, Nexus, and Organizational Culture and Power Relations.

SYNERGISE, in collaboration with INSARAG (International Search and Rescue Advisory Group), showcased its innovations in a shared booth. On May 7th, INSARAG hosted its Steering Group Meeting at the same venue, drawing Urban Search & Rescue (USAR) teams from across the globe to our booth.

At this annual gathering where the United Nations OCHA and humanitarian partners unite to enhance the humanitarian system, SYNERGISE highlighted the Robot ANYmal, a cutting-edge robot further developed within the project. This innovative technology captured significant interest from the global first responder community, demonstrating SYNERGISE’s commitment to advancing emergency response capabilities.
