Start-up corner @ PSCE Conference in Madrid 28-29 November

Our upcoming conference will take place on November 28-29 in Madrid. During two days, the event will focus on crucial issues in public safety, bringing together policy makers, academic researchers, industrial experts and other interested stakeholders. PSCE Conferences traditionally attract about 70 international participants from more than 20 countries and include representatives of EU institutions, national authorities, international organisations, regional authorities, industrial partners, civil society, researchers ect.

For the upcoming edition in Madrid, we wanted to put forward and encourage innovative ideas in by offering Start-ups the opportunity to showcase their product/achievements. Indeed, PSCE conferences constitute the perfect opportunity to reach partners or customers in the public safety domain. Participants will be given the opportunity to briefly present their work during an elevator pitch and there will be a dedicated space for presenting their developments.
