"Brave new world: Building Europe’s capacities for defence and security R&D" event is a public conference promoted by Science|Business to address critical questions related to European Defense and Security research and development (R&D). 

The event is designed to convene high-level representatives from EU institutions, national governments, academia, leading research institutions and key industry sectors such as aerospace, defence, AI, and cybersecurity. The aim is to provide a platform to foster discussions on European defence strategies, funding opportunities, and international cooperation.

The agenda is structured around three central themes:

  1. The need for a "total security" approach, which acknowledges that modern threats are not only military but also cyber, economic, and infrastructural. This perspective necessitates robust R&D development value chains integrating civilian, dual-use, and military research. The role of a prospective new defence commissioner will be a focal point.
  2. The event will  examine the European defence industrial strategy, and the challenge of balancing sovereignty and autonomy with global technological advancements. Discussions will explore how EU procurement and R&D policies can boost cooperation with international partners.
  3. The conference will address the critical question of financing Europe’s future defence and security R&D agenda moving forward, including the European Defence Fund, Horizon Europe & FP10, Digital Europe and NATO’s DIANA programme  A key related topic will be to gather industry recommendations on how to increase pre-competitive collaboration in defence and security R&D.

Limecraft - Powerful workflows for video products

If you’ve never heard of Limecraft, you’re clearly not working in the media sector. Their SaaS platform provides integrated workflows for media management, scripted and unscripted TV, and subtitling and localisation. It is used by leading broadcasting companies – such as BBC, VRT, NPO… – and production firms of which De Mensen or Hotel Hungaria might ring a bell (at least if you are Belgian).

NCP Flanders went to Ghent to interview Maarten Verwaest, CEO and cofounder, about how he sees Horizon 2020. Limecraft is a partner in the MeMAD project, which is a collaborative RIA project submitted to an ICT call topic
