Following the 2017 terror attacks in Manchester and London, the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) and the Home Officeís Office for Security and Counter Terrorism (OSCT) initiated the £2 million 'Improving Crowd Resilience (ICR)' competition to seek innovative ideas to reduce the threat from terrorist and malicious use of explosives and weapons in public spaces.

The capabilities and systems funded have been designed to be used in crowded places by private sector companies who operate and manage many of our public spaces and transport locations and DASA is looking to showcase suppliers' success from the ICR competition at the International Security Expo 2019.

DASA is keen to ensure that private sector operators are provided the opportunity to hear more from the successful suppliers and will be hosting a briefing in the Henley Suite on Tuesday 3rd December at the International Security Expo.

In particular, DASA is reaching out to influencers in the Front Line Services, Home Office and Government stakeholders as well as managers and decision makers for security of crowded places, in areas such as, rail operators, shopping centres, stadiums, airports, large event organisers, security services to public spaces/venues and leisure attractions.

Do you want to get involved? If you are interested in attending the DASA ICR Briefing you will need to register directly for free to attend the International Security Expo (ISE). Registration for the ISE will close on Monday 2nd December.

You will also need to register for the DASA ICR briefing directly via the Eventbrite page and registration will close on Friday 29th November. Note that numbers are limited and if the event is oversubscribed, DASA reserves the right to limit the number of spaces per organisation.
