Public Security Innovation Center
PSIC stands for Innovation, Integration, Interoperability
PSIC delivers innovation, integration and interoperability in public security for end-users worldwide. As
an independent and open platform for proven technologies in public security, The Public Security
Innovation Center (PSIC) offers a vast network of integrated security solutions, linking vendors to
government, business, volunteer organizations, and the public.
PSIC creates opportunities to markets and sells to end-users worldwide through a state-of-the-art demonstration center, trade
missions, conferences and special events and carries out market research, market entry and international sales channel
development for PSIC Participants. PSIC brings innovators to the market through pro-active, unique and customized outreach and
matchmaking. PSIC links participating companies with end-users, resulting in unique public security solutions for each.
Creating New Solutions Together
PSIC brings together public security technology innovators. These are the participating companies, or PSIC Participants, which
represent a wide range of information management and physical security solutions. They have been vetted and have demonstrated
proven technologies through a number of criteria in order to participate in the forum.
Most PSIC Participants are small- to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that foster innovation as part of their corporate culture and
can benefit from a collaborative environment to maximize business value. By bringing Participants together, PSIC fosters the
application of all forms of technology to deliver more effective emergency decision-making for natural, technological and terrorist
events. As a result, Participants innovate technologies and develop specific solutions for clients, the end-users.
PSIC is a forum that links public security technology providers with end-users. Thus, it is not about research or innovation in a
vacuum. End-users (governments, voluntary organizations, and commercial companies) can bring their specific needs to PSIC and
have a solution developed or adapted for them. They can experience the technologies at the PSIC Demonstration Center in The
Hague, or they can meet and interact with Participants through special events such as trade missions to new markets or
customized matchmaking trips.

to achieve more effective prevention, protection, response information, and recovery management.
Managing all types of hazards is part of the fundamental philosophy of technology innovation. True,
www.juris.nl many hazards require specialized treatment (radiation sensors, flood forecast models, chemical
dispersion algorithms, fingerprint records, etc.), but the data acquired by such specialized technologies
www.kleefklimmen.nl has a common requirement that PSIC supports – it must be shared among appropriate organizations.
Thus, PSIC connects specialized technologies with all organizations, a requirement made possible by
www.mygimmy.com the adoption of middleware architecture. In every way, PSIC touches all hazards, supports all
organizations, and contributes to effective management of the lifecycle of public security.
Respond International showcase
International companies specialized in security technology can also become a member of PSIC. Parties
Spadac with a proven solution for the public security market are welcome to showcase their technology. The
PSIC board decides whether such a solution fits into its model. If your company fits the requirements,
Q-resolve PSIC can facilitate the entrance into the Dutch market - and beyond. PSIC reaches a large international
audience. It has already welcomed government officials from European countries, police staff from
Seagull South Africa, hotel security officials from Dubai, to name but a few.
