Security Research Event (SRE) 2018

Making Europe a safer place: demonstrating the impact of EU-funded security research
Square - Brussels Meeting Centre, rue Mont des Arts, 1000 Brussels

The Security Research Event is the annual meeting where industry, governments and knowledge institutions come together to discuss the state of play and current challenges for security research in Europe, and where EU funded security-related projects are displayed in a large exhibition area. The 2018 Security Research Event (SRE 2018), jointly organised by the European Commission and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, will take place on 5th and 6th of December in Brussels at the Square Meeting Centre.

SRE 2018 will represent a wide range of security stakeholders: researchers, industry representatives, public security providers and practitioners (i.e. fire departments, police, border guards, intelligence agencies, etc.), as well as a wide number of policymakers from across Europe.

The European Commission aims at highlighting the role of security research to foster the implementation of EU Policies and address crucial societal challenges. SRE 2018 will demonstrate the strength and inspiring results of security related research and innovation activities, under the theme "Making Europe a safer place - demonstrating the impact of EU-funded security research”.

Dissemination and outreach of projects will be the cornerstone of the conference's discussions, as these activities are among the main enablers of market uptake and are currently identified as a major challenge for security research by all relevant stakeholders.
