E2i Symposium – Realising Security Innovation


This was 1 month ago



Le Bouche à Oreille
Rue Félix Hap 11
1040 Etterbeek Brussels, Belgium

This two-day event in Brussels for security policymakers, practitioners and researchers is the inaugural symposium of the Horizon Europe-funded Engage2innovate security research project. Speakers and delegates will discuss empowering impactful security R&I outputs.

Realising Security Innovation will present and discuss the results of E2i research examining what constitutes real security innovation including:

  • How can the implementation and impact of European security innovation be increased?
  • How might security researchers, practitioners and policymakers be inspired and enabled to deliver more effective and impactful innovation?
  • What tools and approaches might help security R&I projects build implementation into their 'solutions' more effectively — transforming them from 'inventions' into true 'innovations'?

Realising Security Innovation will open with a keynote address from Nicolas Bessot, Head of Innovation and Security Research Unit at the Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs of the European Commission.

The symposium will include presentations, discussions and — on day 2 — a DesignLab workshop. This interactive group session will explore the potential for human-centred social innovation as an enabler of security solutions, and collaboratively investigate and develop conceptual models that might describe this.

Realising Security Innovation will critically explore different approaches said to foster the implementation of R&I project outputs — including end-user and citizen engagement, Social Innovation, and Responsible Research & Innovation (RRI).

Registration for this event is now open here.
