The second edition of the online H2020 Secure Societies European Information Day and Brokerage Event was held on 12th May 2020. The Polish Platform for Homeland Security was invited to attend the event to share its experience regarding implementation of European projects within the Horizon 2020.

PPHS made the decision to submit first European proposals in 2015. Afterwards, its representatives attended the first Info Day & Brokerage Event in Brussels in 2016. As a result of that, a lot of valuable international contacts were made, what led to an involvement in consortia, of which two received European funding (i-LEAD, MINDb44ACT). Thanks to the gathered experience, PPHS is currently involves in 8 EU ongoing projects. The newest project implemented by PPHS is the EU-HYBNET on countering hybrid threats.
