5-6 December: Security research event and media workshop: Making Europe a safer place

The news:

The 2018 Security Research Event (SRE) co-organised by the European Commission and the Austrian Ministry for Transport, Innovation and Technology, will take place on 5 and 6 December. Under the theme "Making Europe a safer place: demonstrating the impact of EU-funded security research", SRE 2018 will demonstrate the results of security-related research and innovation activities as well as their impact on the day-to-day work of security practitioners.

The background:

The Security Research Event is an annual meeting which gathers a wide range of security stakeholders from across Europe: researchers, industry representatives, public security providers and practitioners (fire departments, police, border guards etc.), as well as policymakers. During the event, participants will discuss the state of play and current challenges for security research in Europe. Security research projects which make use of EU funding will also be showcased in a dedicated exhibition area.

The events:

A dedicated workshop for media will take place in the morning of 5 December, ahead of the Security Research Event. The workshop will focus on different aspects of the EU security research programme - its goals, projects, and results.

The Security Research Event will be opened by the European Commission's Director General of DG Home Affairs, Paraskevi Michou. Commissioner for the Security Union Julian King, Austrian Minister for Transport, Innovation and Technology Norbert Hofer, and MEP Dan Nica will then deliver keynote speeches, followed by a joint press conference at 14:40.

Europese Commissie (EC)

Deze instelling van de Europese Unie kan worden beschouwd als het 'dagelijks bestuur' van de EU. De leden van de Europese Commissie worden 'eurocommissarissen' genoemd. Elke eurocommissaris is verantwoordelijk voor één of meerdere beleidsgebieden. Momenteel zijn er 28 eurocommissarissen, voor elke lidstaat één. Samen vormen zij het college van eurocommissarissen. De eurocommissarissen moeten het belang van de Europese Unie als geheel behartigen, niet dat van hun eigen land.

De Europese Commissie mag als enige EU-instelling wetsvoorstellen indienen; zij heeft het zogenaamde recht van initatief. Daarnaast controleert de Commissie of de Europese wetgeving juist wordt toegepast in de lidstaten, onderhandelt zij in internationale organisaties als de Wereldhandelsorganisatie (WTO) over de handel van de Unie met het 'buitenland' en is zij verantwoordelijk voor het beheer van de Europese begroting van ongeveer 140 miljard euro per jaar.
