On 24-25 October 2023, PARATUS will join the Security Research Event (SRE) 2023 in Brussels. The event, organised by the European Commission, is the annual meeting where policy-makers, first responders, researchers and industry come together to discuss the state of play and current challenges for civil security, and ways in which research and innovation can contribute towards the policy goals.

Societal transformations, climate change and digitalisation – a new paradigm of Security Research?

Climate change and related extreme weather events will affect our ability to live as before. They will impact access to clean water, food and affordable energy, thereby creating scarcity and potentially triggering social unrest or displacement of population. At the same time, the real and digital worlds are increasingly intertwined, deeply impacting society at all levels, with an increased penetration of social media and algorithmically amplified information, and creating new opportunities for criminals.

Security authorities are facing a changing world, bringing both opportunities and challenges, that requires rethinking the capabilities needed to perform their missions. While the demand for critical raw materials is projected to increase drastically, geopolitical tensions and global competition generate risks for supply chains and may affect states` sovereignty, prosperity, safety, and security.

This cascading impact of megatrends demands a renewed debate on the role to be played, and contribution to be delivered, by EU security research.

The Exhibition will concretely support the SRE 2023 main theme and will be open through the 2 days of the event. Moreover, it will be enriched with small scale demos prepared by the selected projects.

SRE ’23 will take place during the Spanish Presidency of the Council of the EU and is prepared and organised with the support of Sweden and Spain.
