Over 1300 enterprises from 29 countries participated in SICUR and many of them showed their security portfolio in the exhibitors’ area. Spanish Law Enforcement Agencies, fire brigades and the Spanish Army had also their own stands. Alfa was disseminated by ATOS in the stand from the Spanish Technology Platform on Industrial Safety (PESI). PESI promotes Industrial Safety issues, integrating all the agents interested on research and technological developments. An overview of ALFA was explained there to the PESI´s Secretary General and leaflets where available for visitors. The topics that were addressed in the program of Technical Workshops at SICUR were among others Research and Innovation, Cybersecurity, Critical Infrastructure Protection, Terrorism and Emergencies, forest fires and new legislative features regarding fire-proofing installations. As far as research and innovation is concerned, the SICUR program included an Information day for Horizon 2020’s Secure Societies Call. Among others speakers there were representatives from DG HOME and the Research Executive Agency. More information about the exhibition is available at: http://www.ifema.es/sicur_06/
