Evolving Security SciencE through Networked Technologies, Information policy And Law

Objective

Though security is a field of study capable of diverse applications in
daily life, security science is a young discipline requiring larger
inter-disciplinary effort. ESSENTIAL seeks to develop security science by
addressing two of its main problems: the ad-hoc approach to security
research and the growing complexity of the security environment. To do so,
ESSENTIAL has set itself two main goals: a) to train inter-disciplinary
security experts and professionals, to tackle security threats in a
systematic manner and b) to increase societal resilience and security by
addressing in an interdisciplinary manner 15 research topics, each
associated with long-standing problems in the field of security science
ranging from modeling security perception and democratizing intelligence
to improving security and privacy in data ecosystems.
ESSENTIAL will be the first programme of its kind that aims to jointly
educate the next generation of interdisciplinary experts in security
science, by uniquely exposing the 15 ESRs to: (1) theoretical knowledge
and practical expertise in such areas as: (a) the policing and regulation
of information-security technology, and (b) the implementation of policies
and legal standards within computing and communication systems; (2)
real-world environments in law enforcement, intelligence and industry; (3)
strong academic guidance offered by highly qualified supervisors and
mentors; (4) high tech research infrastructures; and (5) a diversity of
interdisciplinary research events, such as workshops, conferences,
summer/winter schools.
The ESSENTIAL consortium is built upon long-lasting cooperation relations
among leading organizations coming from academia, international and
national stakeholders and the private sector, many of whom have over 25
years of experience in contributing directly to national, European and UN
technology-related policy making.
