NSMCluster´s participation at the international trade show HOMSEC 2013
HOMSEC is an international trade show dedicated to technologies for defence and security. In 2013 it will hold its fourth edition, cementing its status as the principal trade show in Spain for those in the defence and security industry.
NSMCluster was invited by the European Commison to participate in the Security Research Event. Security Research under the 7th Famework Programme (FP7) is getting to its end. The last call for proposals has closed in November 2013 and the time for analysis and conclusion for the European Security Research stakeholders and policymakers is now.
On the other hand, the changing current economic and financial situation since the FP7 approval makes necessary to meet new security needs and growth objectives for the next years. This needs and objectives are addressed by reference documents – e.g. the European Security Research and Innovation Agenda (ESRIA) - and EU strategic policies such as ‘Europe 2020’, ‘Innovation Union’, the ‘Security Industrial Policy’ or the ‘Defence Industrial Policy’ (about to be published).
With the objective to address major challenges, Security Research is permanently bringing together research and innovation, developing knowledge and innovative technologies, enhancing competitiveness and international collaboration, reducing the gap between research and market and creating rapid responses to the interests and needs of the citizens.
At this biennial high level international fair in Madrid, with more than 150 exhibitors and 6.000 foreseen participants and decision-makers from over 100 countries, the European Commission will showcase a selection of FP7 research projects and achievements.
