On 24-25 November, Security Link arranged TAMSEC 2015 in conjunction with Mötesplats Samhällsäkerhet at Kistamässan. The TAMSEC conference program was opened with a session covering ongoing research initiatives within the security area, where ten research organizations in Sweden and Norway gave an outline of their work. During day 2, a panel debate on innovation procurement was arranged. The audience was given an overview of existing innovation procurement tools and could listen to thoughts and experiences from the panel members, representing the National Agency for Public Procurement, Swedish Association of Civil Security, Lindholmen Security Arena and the Swedish Coast Guard. The TAMSEC poster session during day 2 started with an announcement of the prize for best poster. Martin Glimtoft, Ida Johansson, Matilda Ågren, Mattias Svanqvist, and Henric Östmark from FOI were awarded with the prize of ‘TAMSEC 2015 Best Poster’ for their poster “Digital micro-mirror devices in Raman trace detection of explosives”.
Security Link, together with CARER and the project Smart Savannahs, were also present at the exhibition, where several people met up at our stand for informal discussions, demonstrations and not at least for having selfie pictures taken with the full-size rhinoceros displayed at the stand.
Security Link would like to thank Mötesplats Samhällssäkerhet for the opportunity to arrange TAMSEC at Kistamässan and also all of you who contributed to the TAMSEC program. We hope to see you again at our next event.
