Innovation for e-Commerce Security and Countering Illicit Transactions

09:00 - 16:30

This was 1 week ago




This thematic Workshop of the Community for European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS) aims at presenting and discussing European research and innovative solutions, as well as further capability needs, relevant for security in fighting illicit trafficking and criminal activities in the flow of goods and services across the external borders of the European Union, including the security of e-commerce, financial transactions, and/or the circumvention of sanctions.

Interested audience include practitioners, especially customs and law enforcement authorities, but also innovators and policy makers on capabilities such as those related to detection of threats in the flow of goods and services, and risk assessment. The Workshop will bring together updates and EU-funded projects of innovative European technologies in this field, from big data analysis to advanced and safe detection technologies that minimise the disruption to trade flows; present experiences and opportunities of collaborative research and innovation in Europe; and discuss how research results can be more efficiently exploited.

ROOT - Rolling Out OSNMA for the secure synchronization of Telecom networks

The ROOT project obtained funding under Horizon 2020 topic ‘EGNSS applications fostering societal resilience and protecting the environment’. The project, which ran from November 2020 to July 2022,  aimed to demonstrate the benefit of Galileo OSNMA signal to increase the robustness of critical telecom infrastructures.

The Flanders-based company Septentrio contributed substantially to completing this objective together with the other ROOT partners. The results of the project partially close a gap in the security of telecommunication networks dependent on satellite-derived time, with indirect benefits in curbing illegal attempts to disrupt network services.
