Safe and secure urban infrastructure is about much more than pothole-free roads. It also means providing fully functional and reliable electricity, water and data networks in the event of disasters. All this, and much more, will be the focus of discussion at CRI!SE (Critical Infrastructure Event) conference, which will be staged as part of the safety and security showcase in Hall 12. A key information sharing platform for public and private-sector security experts, the conference is specifically designed to foster interdisciplinary cooperation.

The main agenda items in 2015 will include detailed disaster-response planning and education as the keys to effective disaster mitigation. The dialogue at the conference will be complemented by a fascinating array of exhibits, ranging from integrated solutions to rescue robots.
