Security Research Event 2019 in Helsinki

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 event 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. Building on the outcomes of the previous SRE that took place in Brussels in 2018, the main theme of the SRE 2019 will be “Building Bridges: Promoting Market Uptake by Reinforcing Synergies Between Security Research and Other Funding Instrument”. The SRE 2019 will emphasise the need to deepen collaboration between funding schemes to ensure a successful market uptake of the positive outcomes of security research. The event will also focus on the need for security research to keep up to speed with a fast-changing environment to fully exploit the opportunities, and address the threats, posed by new technological trends such as Artificial Intelligence.
