The Security Research Event (SRE) is the annual meeting where industry, policy makers and knowledge institutions come together to discuss the state of play and current challenges for security research in Europe. This year’s event will focus on challenges stemming from global megatrends, which are shifting the ground for security in the EU. The main themes are embraced by the event’s title: “Societal transformations, climate change and digitalisation – a new paradigm of Security Research?”
The SRE 2023 will consist of a Conference and an Exhibition. Opening Keynote Speeches and an Introductory High Level Round Table on the future of security research will set the policy context and provide thoughts for thematic panels of the event. The Exhibition will illustrate the main themes of the event with over 50 booths presenting selected security research projects funded by the EU programmes, as well booths presenting activities of the European Commission, EU agencies in the field of justice and home affairs and the national security research activities of Spain and Sweden. The Exhibition will be complemented by small scale demos from selected EU projects.
