Save the Date: Security Research Event 2018

We would like to inform you that on 5-6 December 2018 in Brussels will be held the next edition of the Security Research Event (SRE). The meeting is organized by the European Commission and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology.

SRE 2018 will run under the theme “Making Europe a safer place: demonstrating the impact of EU-funded security research”. An event will demonstrate the strength and inspiring results of security-related research and innovation activities and how these positively contribute to the work being conducted on a daily basis by thousands of security practitioners.

The Security Research Event (SRE) will consist of two interrelated parts:

  • A Conference in which the main challenges related to the theme of the event will be addressed;
  • An Exhibition that will concretely support the conference’s theme, featuring around 50 projects showcasing their results.

SRE 2018 will gather 800 participants representing a wide range of security stakeholders: researchers, industry representatives, public security providers and practitioners (i.e. fire departments, police, border guards, Law Enforcement Agencies, etc.), as well as a wide number of policymakers from across Europe.

While the first day of the Conference will be characterised by two high level panels, the second day will address a number of security-related dimensions such as:

  • Border management;
  • Citizens awareness;
  • Cybercrime;
  • Protection of public spaces;
  • Maritime Security;
  • Disaster resilient societies;
  • Terrorism;
  • Radicalisation.

Participation in the event is free of charge. The full programme as well as registration details will be soon made available.
