Dear CoU members,
As you know, with the current sanitary crisis, we all had to adapt to new ways of (tele)working and we succeeded to develop the Horizon Europe Work Programme, the new framework programme for research and innovation, in the different areas of the Civil Security for Society programme which is due to be adopted in Spring. In the meantime, discussions about objectives and governance needs of the Community of Users have taken place, which has led to a more ambitious framework under a new name “Community of European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS)”, the implementation of which will be based on various events and objectives that will be explained in events organised by the 5 Thematic Areas of the programme (namely Infrastructure Protection (INFRA – managed together with DG CNECT), Disaster-Resilient Societies (DRS), Fight Against Crime and Terrorism (FCT), Border Management (BM) and Strengthened Security Research and Innovation (SSRI).
Following the DRS workshop on Societal Resilience held on 10th February, this mail is to inform you about the second DRS virtual workshop, which will focus on Technologies for First Responders (presentations of research outputs of projects funded under the DRS02 topics) and will take place on the 24th February 2021 from 10h to 12h CET via a Webex platform hosted by our contractor MCI. If you are interested and want to attend the discussion, we invite you to save the date and to register as soon as the platform will be opened. Rest assure that 2021 will offer plenty of meetings, discussions, and workshop opportunities.
