SYnergy of integrated Sensors and Technologies for urban sEcured environMent
An integrated SYSTEM for continuous monitoring of compounds to detect hazardous substances.
On 5 November 2020 BKA/Bavarian State Police participated to the “EXERTER Virtual Conference 2020”. Organised by the BKA’s Department for Explosives and FOI, the conference resulted in fruitful discussions with respect to different national and international projects aiming to counter, prevent, mitigate or detect threats associated with explosives. SYSTEM was presented to share the technologies and analytical methods under development aiming to improve the sensing of explosives. Further to this, the gained practical experiences from the field were presented by LEAs, Emergency and Rescue Services referring to some occurred explosive attacks.
On 23 November 2019 SYSTEM participated to the Stair4Security and NO-FEAR Joint Conference in Rome. The conference was of particular interest to professionals directly involved in CBRNe and DRR incidents, as well as to people involved in European and national security research programmes and to professionals working with standardisation or ethical and data protection to have a better understanding of standardisation and its tools and mechanisms, such as the revised CEN Workshop Agreement. It was also a fruitful moment for SYSTEM to pave the way towards the creation of fruitful synergies with the organisers aiming at developing joint activities, in particular related to standardisation.
On 30 August 2019 SYSTEM participated to the conference "Chemistry for Secure Societies" held in Salerno (Italy) with a poster presentation. The event saw the participation of chemistry scholars, researchers, industries and military forces who discussed about how to combine science with industry and institutions to predict and protect society. Amongst the topics discussed, a special attention was paid on how chemistry should be more focused on sustainability and on how scholars should start thinking about the environmental long-term consequences of their discoveries in chemistry.
