As part of 5G Techritory 2023, the Latvian Council of Science together with the Federation of Security and Defence Industries of Latvia and Ministry of Education and Science Latvia will host a co-creation event about civil security and cyber security for Horizon Europe projects. The aim of the event is to foster opportunities for international cooperation, collaboration and consortia building for Horizon Europe projects.
When? October 18, 13:00-16:00
The co-creation event will feature presentations about current and future project calls and work group discussions on topics of Horizon Europe program Cluster 3 "Civil security and Cybersecurity": Resilient Infrastructure; Increased Cybersecurity; Effective management for EU external borders; Disaster-Resilient Society for Europe; Better protection for the EU and its Citizens against Crime and Terrorism; Strengthened Security Research and Innovation.
The event "Bridging industry and academia data gap – the human side of it", hosted by the Latvian Ministry of Education and Science in collaboration with the Latvian Higher Education and Science IT Shared Service Centre, brings together data holders, researchers, policymakers, and experts.
When? October 19, 10:00-13:00
We'll delve into non-technical challenges and concerns related to data use in academia, such as building trust between parties, developing procedures and contracts, and fostering understanding to allow flexible yet secure data use for experimental needs. Through expert introductions and interactive discussions, we'll explore challenges, think about solutions to them, and outline actionable steps.
Participation in the events is free of charge, but invitation-only.
