Held on the 29th and 30th JANUARY 2020 at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Brussels, the SMI2G counted with almost 400 participants (out of more than 500 registrations).

The SMI2G is organised by EARTO, Seren4 and EOS, in collaboration with the IMG-S, ECS and the support of ENLETS.

The IMG-S is proud to support and contribute once again to make the SMI2G event a huge success.

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


The interactive sessions are divided into two “strands”: project presentations and brokerage meetings. The interactive sessions are organised in 7 main thematic areas:

  • Protecting the infrastructure of Europe and the people in the European smart cities

  • Border and External Security

  • Disaster Resilient Societies

  • Fight Against Crime and Terrorism

  • Artificial Intelligence and security

  • General Matters

  • Digital Security

Each session includes the following 3 steps:

  1. A short presentation of the theme and a walk through the topics that are covered.
  2. Short presentations of contributions for new proposals by the delegates. Priority is given to presentations by potential coordinators.

  3. Brainstorming and networking on new project ideas and consortia in dedicated groups. During this “brokerage part” of the event, participants are able to meet other interested delegates and discuss their ideas and try to form a consortium.
