Last week, I had the opportunity the meet great people from Swedish civil security industry. By accident, during the same day, I had in depth meetings where we discussed how the work, we do at the Viktoria Institute and the Department of applied IT at University of Gothenburg, could be linked to industrial R&D-projects. We found several very nice links. Especially promising is the interest the two companies expressed in supporting our ongoing work on the LIVE:RESPONSE platform. It is always very nice when research and industry has similar interests, even if our time-scales often are less syncronized. In this case we found some good prospective projects and I am looking forward to continue the talks in order to move our conversations in to action plans. Oh, the companies? Sorry it is still to early to break the news.
