The WIN Guard Meeting April 23rd

April 23 @ 09:00 - 13:00

Hazardous Materials — How do we handle the new ones? Covid-19 effect on rescue services

We hope that you and your loved ones are feeling well given the circumstances! WIN runs its business as usual and welcomes you to the WIN Guard meeting on April 23. The meeting will be run digitally via Zoom as well as physically at Studio in Malmö for those of you already nearby.

Unusual times require unusual solutions and an open forum for innovation and innovation is now needed more than ever. We look forward to seeing you on April 23!

Hazardous materials are all around us with new substances popping up all the time. Today, we do not always have the knowledge of how to handle some of these new materials and substances in case of an accident. Join us at the WIN Guard meeting where we try to solve the challenges that these new substances present.

How can we for example safely discharge electric car batteries on site after a collision? Is it possible to relieve pressure of a gas tank without exposing rescue personnel to risks? What do we have to factor in when preparing for the transport of dangerous goods to avoid accidents with potentially explosive substances? These are just a few of the challenges that require innovative solutions —  how can  drones, robots, sensors or AI help to protect first responders and the public  from exposure to dangerous substances?

At the meeting, we will highlight innovation companies that have found ways of addressing these threats and we will listen to those on the front lines to hear about their experiences and needs when handling incidents with hazardous materials and substances. We welcome you to a day of inspiring presentations, vivid discussions, active networking and knowledge exchange!
