The Conference will open with keynote speeches delivered by high-level representatives from the Commission and Finland.

The theme “Towards Increased Synergies Between Different Funding Schemes and Market Uptake” will be explored by the high-level panel on the first day of the SRE 2019. The panel will gather high-level policy makers, industry representatives and researchers who will debate the notion that security research is not a stand-alone process, and that it is necessary to establish structured links between different funding instruments to achieve the desired market uptake of positive research outputs.

On the second day of the event, six thematic panels will cover issues such as terrorist content online, border security, artificial intelligence, disaster management, hybrid threats and immediate procurement.
