The STRATEGY project collaborated with various EU-funded projects to organise the RISE-SD2023 Conference which took place in Rhodes (Greece) from 29 May to 1 June and served as an EU Research and Innovation showcase in Civil Protection & Defense.
More than 200 attendees from various parts of the European Union, including high-level representatives, researchers, industry professionals, practitioners, and European security and defense stakeholders, gathered at the Rodos Palace Resort Hotel and Convention Center in Rhodes Island to discuss 68 R&D projects related to Disaster and Crisis Management, Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Border Security/Defense Research.
Over the course of three days, attendees had the chance to exchange ideas, present their findings, and take part in workshops covering a broad range of subjects concerning:
• Civil Protection and Disaster-Resilient Societies
• Critical Infrastructures Resilience and Smart Cities
• Better protect the E.U. and its citizens against Crime and Terrorism
• Protection of Public Spaces
• Effective management of E.U. external borders
• Enhancing the defense of the E.U.
• Increased Cybersecurity
• Strengthened Security Research and Innovation
As a co-organizing project of the RISE-SD2023 event, the STRATEGY project had a strong presence. We showcased our achievements through a dedicated booth in the projects’ exhibition area and presented our results on selected outcomes. More specifically, during two conference sessions, we presented to the audience the outcome of the STRATEGY project regarding the Enhancement of Resilience of Critical Infrastructures through pre-standardization and the Data Governance Process within the Digital Chain of Custody.
Following the RISE-SD2023 conference, the STRATEGY project held its final plenary meeting on 1 June 2023. In the plenary, we discussed how the project has progressed over the last three years, and how our outputs will be exploited beyond the lifespan of the project, which comes to a close in August 2023. Plans for the final event, where we will present the final results of the project, were also set in motion. If you would like to attend the final event to hear about the outputs, successes and learnings of the project, watch out for email and social media communication in the near future.
