How can we win the race against time when a terrorist plans a strike ? How should we support emergency services in the event of a catastrophe ? What is the best way to prevent and respond to threats to our water supplies ? There are currently over 100 security research projects being funded by the EU’s Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological development, working to answer these and many other urgent questions. These three DVDs will introduce you to some of the people involved in making our lives safer, in fields such as : maritime rescue, bio security, detection of explosives, security of food and water, emergency response teams and the ethical use of detection technologies. You’ll also get a look behind the doors of three Annual Security Research Conferences and hear what experts are saying.
