SICUR FORUM, the programme of technical seminars at the SICUR 2022 International Safety and Security Trade Fair will run from 22 to 25 February. It provides a space for analysis and debate that will address the most topical issues and the new challenges in security, as part of a critical event that will reflect the importance of this sector for the functioning of the economy and the progress of society.
The SICUR FORUM follows the same organisational format as the trade fair, by sector: Security, Fire Safety and Emergencies, Occupational Health and Safety, and SICUR Cyber.
The Security block will host the seminar presenting the Cluster 3 HORIZON EUROPE FORUM ‘Civil Security for Society’, organised by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), as well as the conferences ‘Women and Security: we drive change in trends’ from the Spanish Association of Security Companies (AES) and ‘Are we Contracting Satisfactory Security Services?’ from the Business Confederation of Security and Service Users (CEUSS). There will also be a session entitled ‘ERTZAINTZA’s Commitment to Innovation: some examples of impact’, while AES is organising the seminar ‘40 years of boosting the industry: global security, new challenges and demands’, which will be organised into four talks discussing the disappearance of cash in Spain, biometrics in private security, digitalisation in private security and EU Next
Generation funds, and cybersecurity standards for technology products and services in the security industry.
Fire safety and emergencies
At the forum dedicated to fire safety and emergencies, the Valencia Local Police will present ‘DARLENE – Augmented Reality and the Security Forces for Critical Incident Resolution’ and ‘STAMINA – for Pandemic and Security Crisis Management: the first international forum demonstrating technological solutions’. The seminar ‘Pre-Commercial Public Procurement: preliminary market consultation for the European iProcureSecurity Project’, organised by the 061 Health Emergency Centre of the Regional Government of Andalusia, will discuss the pre-commercial acquisition of innovative triage management systems and the strengthening of resilience and interoperability of emergency medical services.

There will also be a seminar on Drones from the Mossos d’Esquadra and a session dedicated to ‘Innovation and New Challenges’, organised by the Association of Fire Protection Engineering Professionals (APIC). Meanwhile, the Spanish Association of Fire Protection Societies, TECNIFUEGO, is organising a session addressing issues such as remote inspection for safety optimisation, options for protection against storm risks, early warning in industrial facilities and forested areas, new technologies – including drones and artificial intelligence – in the field of fire detection, fire protection engineering in the prevention of occupational risks, and digitalisation of services associated with fire protection maintenance. To close the fire section, there will be a session on ‘Lessons Learned’, organised by the Association for Risk Prevention and Protection (CEPREVEN) and the Professional Association of Fire Technicians (APTB).
