In this regard, several experts participated at the workshop, among those the invited speaker Dr. Stefania Brusa (Specialist in Anesthesia at Humanitas Research Hospital in Rozzano, MI  and new Coordinator of the SIAARTI study group on simulation), who together with important representatives of the universities (University of Foggia, Hospital Clinic of Barcelona, Emergency Institute for Cardiovascular Diseases “Prof Dr CC Iliescu”,  Ludwig-Maximilians-University, University of Stavanger) and companies (InfoTech, Laerdal, Take The Wind, Azienda Sanitaria dell’Alto Adige) involved in the project,  shared their experiences and enriched the event.
