The Secure societies work programme for the years 2018-2020 was presented by the European Commission on the 27. October and has been made available on online. This work programme covers the years 2018,2019 and 2020 but the parts that relate to the years 2019 and 2020 are initially provided on an indicative basis and will be clarified upon during 2018-2019 as necessary.
Health-NCP-Net 2.0 is organizing a free of charge Partnering Event on December 7th, 2017 in Brussels.
As the 2018-2020 Work Programme for “Health, Demographic Change & Wellbeing” will soon be launched and the next calls will open, the Partnering Event is the perfect opportunity to find a partner and to build your consortium.
The main part of the day is dedicated to bilateral meetings between people who are interested in the same call area.
The event will also provide information about support measures for Health projects and give researchers and entrepreneurs a platform to present their project ideas in 5-minute presentations.
The workshop “Next Generation User Authentication by Voice Biometrics? Ready to Market!”, organised by the European Project OCTAVE (Objective Control for Talker Verification), will take place in Florence on the 27th of June 2017.
Speakers will deliver their talk in English or Italian (simultaneous translation in both languages).
OCTAVE is a project funded by the E.U. Horizon 2020 Programme, in the Secure Societies Area. It has implemented and validated a scalable, trusted voice biometric authentication service. While simultaneously relieving end-users from the inconvenience of dealing with textual passwords, the OCTAVE platform will reduce the economic and practical burdens related to password loss and recovery.
19th – 20th June 2017, Minneapolis (US)
The “Trans-Atlantic Symposium on ICT Technology and Policy – 5G Networks, Big Data, Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems for a Smart Society”, organised by the European Commission-funded PICASSO project, hosted by the Technological Leadership Institute, University of Minnesota, and co-sponsored by additional EU and US organisations, will cover the spectrum from research assessments via commercialisation opportunities to policy issues in information and communication technologies (ICT) such as 5G networks, Big Data, and the Internet of Things (IoT)/cyber-physical systems (CPS).
In addition to PICASSO, session organisers include BILAT USA 4.0, Intelligent Manufacturing Systems, and Clean Energy Economy Minnesota.
Comprising a combination of plenary and parallel sessions, the symposium will set focus on impacts for a smart society and related industry sectors.
The event will also present “opportunity reports”, including prioritisation of R&D and application needs, and recommended areas for EU-US collaboration, that have recently been prepared by the PICASSO Expert Groups in IoT/CPS, 5G networks, Big Data and Policy.
