Principality of Monaco: Mark Mawson awarded with FUTURUM PRIZE by Prince Albert II of Monaco
It was September 2010 when the newly established Monegasque Futurum association - founded by architect Kawther Al Abood – organized his first three activities. Held from the 23rd to 26th they welcomed eminent experts and scientists from the MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) for an exceptional business meeting entitled ‘Energy Forum.’

At the same time, in Monaco, the association arranged the world premiere of 'Death and the Powers,' a new opera produced at the MIT Media Lab by American composer Tod Machover, thanks to Futurum who partnered his creation.
It marked the start of Futurum’s activities, strictly related to the association’s objectives to develop, promote and encourage ‘futuristic' events in the world of art and science. Every year since then, Futurum has shared with its members many original initiatives, such as exclusive gala evenings or private visits to major art museums, always with the aim of discovering and appreciating artists able to combine their talents with innovative technologies.
In 2013, the prestigious 'Futurum Award' was established, the trophy being a replica of the sculpture 'La vague de l'amour,' produced by the President himself (the original work is part of the permanent collection exhibited in Cap Martin Park in Roquebrune Cap Martin).
Selected by the Futurum Board of Directors, the prize has been awarded each year to an emerging artist or an artist already recognised worldwide for their ability to combine art, talent and new technologies.
To date, the prize has been presented five times, at an exclusive evening attended by HSH Prince Albert II, Honorary President of Futurum, where mainly internationally renowned guests are invited to share their experiences with the audience.
Following the success last year of American glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, Futurum’s Board of Directors, comprising President Kawther Al Abood, Régis Bergonzi (Vice-President), Lars H. Ericson (Secretary) and Mahmoud Al Abood (Treasurer) have decided to present this year’s prestigious Futurum Award to the internationally renowned English photographer, Mark Mawson. He has been invited to attend the ceremony held in Monaco on 25th October 2018.
“Once again, choosing the winner was not easy," said President Al Abood, who adds: "We analysed about ten candidates and all of them were particularly brilliant and authors of work created thanks to the support and use of new technologies. In the end it was Mawson's talent and creations that won us all over, with his colours and ability to interpret abstract concepts through the use of innovative techniques. For this reason I was really happy to welcome him to Monaco and present some of his works at the 6 th Futurum Awards Gala that has been considered an unforgettable event in Monte-Carlo.”
ABOUT FUTURUM: The association aims to encourage and promote futuristic projects in all the Arts, including Science (as an Art), at an international level, encouraging the participation of a young generation of artists and scientists, in all of the domains that affect everyday life.

The “Centre Hospitalier de la Côte Basque” in France Has Started the Evaluation of the Biolog-id’s C-LOG® Solution20.6.2019 18:35:00 EEST | Tiedote
The Centre Hospitalier de la Côte Basque (CHCB) in Bayonne has been using Biolog-id's C-LOG® solution since early April 2019. This solution secures and optimizes the circuit of chemotherapy and immunotherapy, from their preparation all the way to the administration to the patient. The C-LOG® solution has been used at the CHCB. "During the last HAS audit, a lack of traceability was revealed in the chemotherapy circuit. In order to close this gap, we decided to install the C-LOG® solution which, in addition to securing the administration to the patient's bed, makes it possible to trace the preparation circuit from the pharmacy to the reception in the nurses station," says Dr. Burtin, Pharmacist at CHCB. The solution will be tested for evaluation for 3 months before final adoption. "The RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology is the foundation of our solution. The tag affixed on each preparation contains the product and patient data. This information is updated in real-time and c
CSC Announces Cyber Security Findings for the Media Industry20.6.2019 18:00:00 EEST | Tiedote
Securing a company’s digital infrastructure has become a major concern to corporations worldwide. With leading security companies and other organizations alerting corporations and the public to recent widespread, state-sponsored domain name system (DNS) hijacking, more and more brands are starting to take action. CSC has been issuing Cyber Security Reports since 2017, culling the most important information about security risks, and in particular, risks to brands that are not mitigated by a traditional firewall. The recent research conducted by CSC focuses on the media industry, revealing that 78% of global media brands use a corporate domain registrar, yet only 37% of those have a registrar lock to protect their DNS from hijacking. Recent domain hijacking, unauthorized changes, and deletion of vital domains have shown that effectively managing domain names and DNS must become a critical component for enhancing the security posture of any company with an online presence.

Smiths Detection has won a contract with Meridian Port Services Limited (MPS) to provide cargo inspection technology for the major Tema Port Expansion project in Ghana - designed to accommodate the world’s largest container ships, improve cargo handling productivity and increase trade to both Ghana and the rest of Africa. Four Smiths Detection HCVPZ60 scanning portals were selected to deliver the Ghanaian authorities more efficient border security, while safeguarding state revenue derived from duties and taxes on containerised goods. With trade anticipated to grow in Ghana in the coming years, these portals have been selected in part because of their ability to facilitate fast and effective security processing of a high volume of container traffic.
