Third Annual First Responder Vendor Outreach Forum: Facilitating Vendor First Responder Collaboration to End Canada's Interoperability Crisis
The Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance (CATA), the Canadian Police Research Centre (CPRC) and the Canadian Interoperability Technology Interest Group (CITIG) have been working together since February 2006 to close the gap between First Responders and their procurement of advanced and appropriate information and communication technologies (ICT). This collaboration has involved numerous national research projects aimed at understanding and addressing Canadian First Responder ICT challenges, the cumulative findings of which identified the need for a Vendor Outreach Forum (VOF).
For the third consecutive year, CATA, CPRC and CITIG are hosting a uniquely formatted and innovative First Responder VOF. Once again, the Forum will provide ICT and advanced security vendors and First Responder/Public Safety and Security (PSS) leaders with an opportunity to engage with one another to shape the direction of industry R&D, address current issues through cooperative action and commence developing a Technology Roadmap for Canadian First Responders.
The third annual forum occurs September 28 and 29, 2010 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Download this prospectus for supporter information, and visit the CATA's Web site for registration information.
