Security Mission Information & Innovation Group (SMI2G) Event

Welcome to

Security Mission Information & Innovation Group (SMI2G) Event

The traditional two-days event organised by SEREN4, EARTO Security & Defence research Working Group, EOS, IMGS, ECSO and ENLETS, will take place online!

As a tradition this event will focus on security issues within the European Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, thus, within Horizon Europe! The event will be structured around several interesting keynote speeches, panel discussions and a brokerage event, all related to the first calls of the "Civil Security for Society" cluster!

What to know?

The SMI2G event 2021 will take place online because of the worldwide situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic and, therefore, several novelties are foreseen. There won't be the usual pitch sessions like the ones organised during the physical events. Participants had the opportunity to send their pitch presentations. These have already been collected and categorized per call and published HERE

All participants can now book their bilateral meetings with the owners of the pitch presentations most interesting to them or, otherwise, book their bilateral meetings as always, contacting people and organisations with the skills and competences they are looking for.

Cluster 3 call topics were put into the B2Match system (for bilateral meetings' appointment phase).They were taken from draft Cluster 3 Work Programme. You can use the draft Work Programme as a reference doc (please, remind that this is only a draft version, not even a pre-publication and things might change until the official publication and launch of the calls) of the work programme available on this page index.cfm (europa.eu)

Whole registration will be managed here, on the B2Match website and will imply:

  • registration to follow the panel sessions and the keynote speeches,
  • registration to the brokerage event,
  • registration to follow on or more of the success-stories sessions.

Technical aspects:

  • Different sessions will be hosted on Webex (up to 1000 participants - registration will be on a first come first serve basis) and only people that have registered will recieve the link to access. Sessions will be recorded and the recording will be available after the event.
  • Bilateral meetings will be hosted on B2Match (NOT ON WEBEX) and participants registered will recieve the link.
