As in previous years, the Security Mission Information & Innovation Group (SMI2G) is organising a two-day event in Brussels to discuss on the upcoming 2017 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 Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd February 2017. This year the SMI2G is kindly hosted again by Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Brussels.

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 (as SMIG) was held in 2004 with the first call of the preparatory action on Security Reseach. Today, the meetings attract over 400 delegates, representing SMEs, Research & Technology Organisations, Academia and Industry from all EU-28 and associated countries.

The event in 2017 will focus on the H2020 Work Programme for the “Secure Societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens” (download the work programme). All delegates are invited to present their proposals and ideas for each topic of the Work Programme which are open in 2017 in an interactive session. This time, the delegates will also get the opportunity to receive feed-back from end-users, to discuss lessons learnt and what to expect for the future of the EU security research programme.
