This event will be held on Tuesday 29th and Wednesday 30th January 2019. This year the SMI2G is kindly hosted again by Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Brussels.
As in previous years, the Security Mission Information & Innovation Group (SMI2G) is organising a two-day event in Brussels to discuss on the upcoming 2019 Secure Societies calls of Horizon 2020. This brokerage event will provide a unique networking platform to stimulate innovative ideas and facilitate the creation of consortia. All Secure Societies topics will be represented.
Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to expand your network and find partners!
The SMI2G focuses on the features of Horizon 2020 (H2020) with the view of exchanging information on the Secure Societies calls to stimulate networking and consortia building. The objective is to give the delegates the opportunity to create ideas and find partners for each open research call of the EU security research programme.
The first meeting was held in 2004 with the first call of the preparatory action on Security Research. Today, the meetings attract over 400 delegates, representing SMEs, Practitioners, Research & Technology Organisations, Academia and Industry from all EU MSs and associated countries.
The event in 2019 will focus on the H2020 Work Programme for the “Secure Societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizen”. Furthermore, all Topics addressing the Focus Area “BOOSTING THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE SECURITY UNION” will be discussed. You can find the programmes here. All delegates are invited to present their proposals and ideas for each topic of the Work Programme which are open in 2019. Security practitioners are explicitly invited to present their specific needs and the delegates will have the opportunity to discuss their proposal ideas with the practitioners attending.
We look forward to meeting you in Brussels!
