The Webinar:

The overall purpose of this workshop is getting the Security of Explosives’ sector companies together to share their experiences related to turning their innovations into successful products. We will also have a discussion session focussed on innovation business models and which actions our regulators could undertake in order to make Europe more attractive for cutting edge companies. It shares a common ground with the previous EXERTER online webinar in the series, which focussed on standardization, but it covers the whole innovation loop from the inception of something new until it turns into a successful product in the market. It deals as well with our current business environment, where EU’s research and innovation programmes are meant to be a game changer by supporting industry and innovations to remain competitive in the current world stage.


The Speakers:

The workshop will count with speakers from different European law enforcement bodies, SoE companies, academia and R&D centres among which we can mention PSNI (Ireland), DSTL (UK), FOI (Sweden), INTA (Spain), TNO (Nederland), CDTI (Spain), Rohde-Schwarz (Germany), ESRI (UK), TSD (Spain), EOS (Nederland), Iturri (Spain) and TEAM (Spain).


Welcome!

The Talk:

For years, scholars have claimed that suicide terrorists are not suicidal, but rather psychologically normal individuals inspired to sacrifice their lives for an ideological cause. However, the evidence suggests that in terms of their behavior and psychology, suicide terrorists are actually more like others who commit conventional suicides, murder-suicides, or unconventional suicides where mental health problems, personal crises, coercion, or fear of capture play a major role. By better understanding these attackers, security officials may be able to develop more effective countermeasures for preventing their attacks.


The Speaker:

The webinar is given by Dr. Adam Lankford, Professor of Criminology at The University of Alabama. Dr. Lankford is the author of two books and many peer-reviewed journal articles. His research has been covered by every major news organization in the United States and by media outlets from more than 40 countries.
