About the Security Mission Information & Innovation Group
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 2020 will focus on the H2020 Work Programme for the “Secure Societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizen”. 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 2020. 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.
