Community for European Research and Innovation for Security Annual Event 2021
Aiming to facilitate interactions within the security research community and users of research outputs, in 2014 the Commission established the Community of Users for Safe, Secure and Resilient Societies (CoU). This informal platform included around 1,500 registered stakeholders (policy makers, end-users, academia, industry and civil society) and regularly held thematic events with the security research community.
In light of the forthcoming Horizon Europe developments between 2021-2027, the CoU has enlarged its scope to become the Community for European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS).
The 2021 edition of the annual CERIS FCT (Fight against Crime and Terrorism) event will take place online.
The first day of the event will be the AI-day, where various strategic, as well as action-oriented aspects of AI in security research and innovation, will be discussed, in the area of FCT and beyond. Security research policy aspects, AI accountability framework for security practitioners, citizens’ role, (inter)national initiatives, and security research projects from the latest AI call will be presented.
The second day of the event will be the communication & exploitation day. The importance and different aspects of communication of security research projects will be discussed.
The event will take place on 21 and 22 September from 10h00 to 16h30 CET.
