The MEDEA project (Mediterranean practitioners’ network capacity building for effective response to emerging security challenges, GA 787111 – https://www.medea-project.eu/) was successfully represented at the Security Research Event (SRE) 2018 Conference on the 5th & 6th of December 2018 at the Square Meeting Centre1 in Brussels, Belgium, presenting in parallel its vision, main objectives and achieved outcomes.
The Security Research Event is the annual meeting where industry, governments and knowledge institutions come together to discuss the state of play and current challenges for security research in Europe, and where EU funded security-related projects are displayed in a large exhibition area. The 2018 Security Research Event (SRE 2018), jointly organised by the European Commission and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, gathered 800 participants.
The MEDEA project attracted the interest of the majority of the participants, who represented a wide range of security stakeholders: researchers, industry representatives, public security providers and practitioners (i.e. fire departments, police, border guards, intelligence agencies, etc.), as well as a wide number of policymakers from across Europe.
