Security Research & Innovation Event | 1-2 Jun

On 1 & 2 June 2016 the Security Research & Innovation Event (SRIE 2016), powered by HSD, will be held at The World Forum. The Hague Security Delta (HSD), Europe’s largest security cluster, will be putting on an action-packed programme consisting of workshops, debates, networking events and much more besides. And of course the Security Research & Innovation Event just wouldn’t be the same without the HSD Innovation Room.

Several organisations have already announced that they want to take part of the Innovation Room and side tracks to launch innovative new products, to give presentations, to host ‘challenges’ or to contribute in some other way.

Inspire us and make your ideas known!

We’d like to give everyone the opportunity to make their ideas known, and in doing so, to help us make the Security Research & Innovation Event a resounding success. We are looking for ideas that are as tangible as possibly by creating experiences and providing interesting interactions with the visitors.

If you’ve got any ideas for our programming, then please let us know before 2 April by contacting our project leader, Mary-Jo de Leeuw

If you want to be part of the Innovation Room, please consider the following criteria that have been imposed for exhibitors:

1. Companies/organisations must be operational in the field of

  • EMPACT priorities: Law Enforcement and Cybercrime
  • Border management
  • Financial Investigations and Fraud
  • Space and Security
  • Forensics
  • Terrorism

2. Exhibitors must present innovations in this same field, e.g. research, proposals or demonstrations.

3. These should preferably be something visual.

HSD will be selecting the participating exhibitors. Since we can only host 35 organisations in our Innovation Room, we urge you to respond quickly!
