Improving crowd resilience demonstration day

The Defence and Security Accelerator will be holding a collaboration event in London on Thursday 3 May 2018 to demonstrate the successfully funded proposals and identify opportunities for collaboration with other organisations.

Improving Crowd Resilience Competition

Following the 2017 terror attacks which targeted crowded places, the Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT) and Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) launched a £1 million competition on 27 July 2017 to develop innovative approaches to improving crowd resilience.

We are holding a collaboration event to highlight these innovative ideas to suppliers already delivering solutions in the following areas within the crowded places supply chain :

  • CCTV hardware
  • CCTV software/video analytics
  • Thermal imaging camera systems
  • Managed Service Providers providing systems integration and/or buildings system management
  • Event management companies
  • Marketing companies

This is a unique opportunity to discuss collaboration on the five funded projects that are eligible for further Government funding.
