Microsoft on Emergency Response

Michael Sampson - Currents

The Microsoft Innovation Centre was established in August 2002 to support innovating ideas from government agencies. The centre has funded 28 projects since 2002, and Microsoft puts up to $1 million a year into the Center (in New Zealand). Rob showed a video on how the E-SPONDER system was used to support the SuperBowl in Tampa FL. I am at a Microsoft event in Christchurch (New Zealand), co-presented by Intergen New Zealand.
