Hotel Metropole, Brussels, Belgium
13-14 March 2019
The event is organized by the Network of Secure Societies National Contact Points – SEREN4, in collaboration with the European Commission. This information day and brokerage event gives details on the 2019 calls for proposals to be published mid March 2019 under the Societal Challenge 7 "Secure Societies - Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens".
These calls offer new research funding opportunities to research institutions, universities, industries, SMEs, civil society organizations and other security stakeholders. Participation to the event is free of charge and the number of participants is limited due to the capacity of the rooms.
On 23 January 2019, the European Commission presented for the first time a report about the risks of investor citizenship and residence schemes operated by several EU Member States.
The report is mainly aimed to identify such risks these schemes imply for the EU Member States, especially in connection with money laundering, tax evasion, corruption and security.
In this field, lack of transparency and collaboration among Member States critically enhance the issue.
