29-30 January 2020

Security Mission Information & Innovation Group (SMI2G) is organising a two-day event in Brussels to discuss the upcoming 2020 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.

This event will be held on Wednesday 29th and Thursday 30th January 2020. The SMI2G is kindly hosted by Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Brussels.

SMI2G Presentations (.zip 60MB)



All the presentations (each PPT is vocally commented) are now accessibile and downloadable here or through Google Drive.

With reference to Q&A, it has been agreed to proceed in the following way:

• through this google form https://forms.gle/eQwBLSoA8kF8G6tr9 you will be able to ask questions about the different presentations you have listened to;

• we will collect all the questions, categorized per area, and: 

o questions related to Intellectual Property, SEREN4 or SeReMa tool, will be forwarded directly to the speaker, Mr. Michele Dubbini, Talia Passiar and me,

o all the other questions will be submitted, by us, directly on the Research Enquiry Service so that there won't be duplications.

You have time to send questions, but it would be good if we could collect them by Tuesday, 17th of March. All questions and answers will be collected in a unique document that will list them in a categorized way and will be shared with everybody. 

Do not hesitate to contact the organizer whether you will face technical problems.

With reference to the Brokerage Event, the Oral Pitch Session and the ISF training (13th of March), everything will be postponed to when the situation due to the virus is solved.

Unfortunately the organizers are not responsible for any kind of reimbursement since this situation is a force majeure situation.

All details will follow in the forthcoming weeks.

Thank you for your understanding!

Kind regards,

Your SEREN4 Team
