The fifth annual European Security Research Conference


Since the beginning of the Seventh Framework Programme, Security is a new theme within the programme. Following the recommendations of the Commission’s European Security Research Advisory Board (ESRAB).
The Directorate-General Enterprise and Industry co funds yearly the organisation of a Security Research Conference (SRC) which takes place in the country responsible for the Presidency of the EU, during the second half of the year.
In 2010 the fifth edition of the SRC will be organized by the Belgian Federal Science Policy Office, and is scheduled from 22 to 24 September 2010 in Ostend.

SRC10 will address different objectives and target groups from all European Member and Associated States as well as Third Countries. The event is expected to bring together +-1000 representatives from Research, Industry, European institutions, public authorities and other stakeholders with an interest in the security of Europe’s citizens.

SRC10 will build upon the momentum of the Lisbon Treaty, creating new opportunities in the field of security. The event will have two focuses: a political one and a second focus on ‘delivery’ in the sense of new products and services by matching demand and supply. SRC10 will also communicate the results of FP7-research as well as inform on the upcoming calls.

SRC10 will thus serve as a platform for exchange of ideas, potential cooperation and reconcilement of future activities on European and global level in the field of security research, technology and innovation. It will feed the long term thinking (horizon 2020).
