Tele2 Sweden announced that its 2012 'Tele2 M2M Innovation Award' contest was won by Joakim Ericson, a student from Chalmers University of Technology. He was awarded the first prize and SEK 70,000 for his idea about the ways in which M2M technology can be used to facilitate and make more efficient the work of fire rescue brigades. Joakim's idea is to connect existing fire fighters' databases to a national digital map of properties to increase the possibility of saving both people and properties. The second place went to Jonas Haag, Malmo University, with his 'Save the heart (Save the Hjarta) ' idea, and the third place was awarded to Cathrin Malmqvist, also from Malmo University, for her idea 'TappAlert'.
