In the context of the Programme for the Competitiveness of Small and Medium-sized enterprises (COSME), the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME), acting under powers delegated by the European Commission, awarded a tender to the KET4Dual Team (EASME/COSME/2014/019).
Within this context the KET4Dual Team has carried out a study with the aim of identifying the dual-use potential of Key Enabling Technologies, in order to increase synergies between civilian and defence research.
The KET4Dual team explored different sources to identify the most relevant dual use innovation potential of KETs in different areas. The methodology included:
The results of this analysis are the object of today’s workshop.
Today we are going to ask you to support us in preparing comprehensive SWOTs including: obstacles to the increase of the dual use synergies at research, administrative, institutional, industrial or other level; identification of possible solutions for overcoming these obstacles; access to both civilian and military research results and dissemination (for example to maximise research cost savings); ways to increase awareness on the research results – including SMEs; ways to combine funding from public and private sources and maximize private funding for dual use technologies in the area of KETs. The results of today’s work will be provided as a set of recommendations to the Commission.

The University of Bologna, D’Appolonia, APRE, the Secure societies SEREN3, with the support of the Italian Ministry of Interior, are pleased to invite you to the European workshop on H2020 Secure Societies: New synergies between Safety and Security of Industrial Infrastructures, that will be held in Rome on 16th November at Istituto Superiore Antincendi, Dipartimento dei Vigili del Fuoco, del Soccorso Pubblico e della Difesa Civile.
The enhancement of the capacity of response and resilience of industrial systems to malicious attacks must integrate prevention barriers, either addressing cyber security or physical protection of the site, and aspects related to the security of critical infrastructures and the protection of the population.
The development of new methodologies, skills and technologies is a key element of the strategy for responding to such new and emerging threats. In this context, the development of a joint initiative for infrastructure security and safety of industrial sites is strategic in the perspective of H2020, in particular for the Societal Challenges Pillar: “Challenge 7 - Secure Societies: protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens”.
The morning session aims at creating a specific network on these topics, with the involvement of key stakeholders, in order to create synergies and to meet the demands of the H2020 program.
Before the beginning of the afternoon session a networking event will be organized.
During the afternoon session (in italian) a roundtable with several national stakeholders will take place in order to facilitate exchange of experiences, practices and to explore the possibility of creating a common initiative.
The registration link is available at the following page.
The draft agenda will be shared soon.
