The first scoping meeting of the Border Management (BM) Community of European Research and Innovation for Security (CERIS), at which BorderSens is honoured to be represented by its project manager, was held yesterday.
CERIS is the evolution of the Community of Users for Safe, Secure and Resilient Societies (CoU), which in the last decade gathered policy-makers, scientists, practitioners, industry and civil society and regional groups to discuss research in security areas more or less corresponding to its Programme’s ones (Fight Crime and Terrorism, Disaster Resilient Societies, Infrastructure Protection and Border Management).
From 2021 on, CERIS is seeking a more proactive participation of technical experts and civil society. Furthermore, CERIS will have a more structured and systematic governance and per area of our EU security research programme.
