Berlin Airports takes part in the European research project SIAM24.03.2011
The project involves developing systems that can be used to assess the effectiveness of security measures and technologies (SMT) in preventing and combating crime, and the potential infringements on the freedom of citizens.
Universities, EU and Israeli research institutes and the aviation network of the Berlin-Brandenburg Aerospace Alliance are all taking part in the project. Besides Berlin Airports, test users include Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv and the Turin and London Underground. The project will run until February 2014.
Regular conferences and forums will be held for research institutes and test users to exchange information. As of 1 April, a researcher from the Berlin Institute of Technology will be employed as an “embedded scholar” in the Safety & Security department at Berlin Airports. This will greatly improve dialogue between research institutes and test users. More information can be found at www.siam-project.eu.
