Secure Societies & H2020

We recently attended the Info Day and Brokerage Event about the calls for proposals “Secure Societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens” in lined with the social goals of the Europe 2020 strategy.

The first in Madrid on January 17 was organized by the CDTI (the Center for Industrial Technological Development of the Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness from Spain). And the second took place in Brussels between 6 and 7 March and it was organized by SEREN3 (Network of National Contact Points of Secure Societies), a consortium in which the CDTI is also integrated.

Both days help us to provide guidance to align our technology and projects with the cross-cutting objectives of research and innovation of Horizon 2020. In this events the procedural and legal details were itemized, as well as the content and objectives of the main topics: Critical Infrastructure Protection; Disaster Resilience: Safeguarding and securing society; Fight Against Crime and Terrorism; Border Security and External Security; General Matters on Security; Digital Security.

At the Brussels event, we also had the opportunity to present our Smart Drones technology to the public and meet with various business leaders, institutions and organizations in the security sector. What opportunity!

We return satisfied with new objectives and applications, new collaborators and new fields to continue innovating.
