Security Research Event
The Security Research Event is the annual meeting where industry, governments and knowledge institutions come together to discuss the state of play and current challenges for security research in Europe, and where EU funded security-related projects are on show.
The 2019 Security Research Event (SRE 2019), organised by the European Commission and the Ministry of the Interior in Finland as a side event of Finland’s Presidency of the Council of the European Union, will take place on 6th and 7th of November at the Helsinki Congress Paasitorni, in Helsinki, Finland.
The SRE 2019 will gather 400 participants representing a wide range of security stakeholders: researchers, industry representatives, public security providers and practitioners - including fire departments, police, border guards, and intelligence agencies - as well as policymakers from across Europe.
This year’s event comes at a key moment since it coincides with the beginning of the new Commission and the final preparation phase of the new Framework Programme for Research and Innovation: Horizon Europe.
