The Malaga University hosts on October 13 and 14 the QROC European Project meetingwhich will bring together a high representation of European Union entities linked to the technology sector for police use. Representatives of 16 member states will participate; as well as companies and public entities that develop security technologies in Europe. This project is an initiative of the core group of the European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services (ENLETS).
The different ministries, represented by their police forces, that participate are: The Netherlands, Switzerland, Sweden, Great Britain, Spain, Poland, Italy, Belgium, Luxembourg, Portugal, France, Finland, Ireland, Cyprus, the Czech Republic and Slovenia.
The overall objective of this project is to provide all EU member states and their National Operational Centers with a increased level of responsiveness to protect citizens and public spaces against terrorist attacks and threats. To do this, it is intended to quickly and securely share cross-border operational data related to threats.
Yesterday’s conference, which was held in the assembly hall of the ETS of Telecommunications Engineering, was attended by the director of the Services Inspection of the UMA, José Joaquín Quirante; the director of the ETS of Telecommunications Engineering, Rafael Godoy; the Deputy Director General of Logistics and Innovation of the National Police, José García Molina; the head of the European Network of Technology Services for Law Enforcement, Pattrick Padding; the representative of the General Directorate of the Interior of the EU, Max Brandt, (connected by videoconference); and Manuel Ruiz de Quintanilla (CTO and founder of AEORUM, Spin Off of the UMA).
During the celebration of these conferences, different demonstrations of technologies and simulations of police operations are also carried out.
The University of Malaga participates proactively in the development of security technologies in Europe, through an open innovation model promoted by its professors, researchers, graduates and spin offs, such as AEORUM, having established a framework for exchange collaboration of information and knowledge with ENLETS during all these years.
