The Security Mission Information & Innovation Group (SMI2G) is organising a two-day event in Brussels to discuss on the upcoming 2018 Secure Societies and ICT calls of Horizon 2020. This brokerage event will provide a unique networking platform to stimulate innovative ideas and facilitate the creation of consortia. All security topics will be represented.

This event will be held on Thursday 1st and Friday 2nd February, 2018. This year the SMI2G is kindly hosted again by Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Brussels.

Don't miss out on this excellent opportunity to expand your network and find partners for your proposals!
Details and the link for registration will be send in due time.


The SMI2G focuses on the features of Horizon 2020 (H2020) with the view of exchanging information on the Secure Societies calls to stimulate networking and consortia building. The objective is to give the delegates the opportunity to create ideas and find partners for each open research call of the EU security research programme.


The first meeting was held in 2004 with the first call of the preparatory action on Security Research. Today, the meetings attract over 400 delegates, representing SMEs, Practitioners, Research & Technology Organisations, Academia and Industry from all EU MSs and associated countries.

The event in 2018 will focus on the H2020 Work Programme 2018-2020 for the “Secure Societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens”. Specifically, Secure Societies 7 and the security calls within the ICT Work Programme. All delegates are invited to present their proposals and ideas for each topic of the Work Programme which are open in 2018. The delegates will get the opportunity to receive feed-back from practitioners in a dedicated roundtable, to discuss lessons learnt and what to expect for the future of the EU Security Research programme.

We look forward to meeting you in Brussels!

Note: the organisation cannot provide any reimbursement or certificates for participation to SMI2G 2018.
