EC-ERCIM Strategic Seminar on ICT Security

Brussels 16 October 2008

ERCIM and the European Commission are jointly organising a Strategic Seminar on "Engineering Secure Complex Software Systems and Services" on 16 October in Brussels. The seminar is the result of a joint effort of ERCIM, its Security and Trust Management Working Group and the European Commission (Unit F5 "Security" of DG INFSO).

Scope and Objectives

Responding to the need for closer ties with the European ICT industry, the ERCIM Board of Directors embarked on the initiative to organize a series of annual strategic seminars on current topics within ICT and Mathematics. The rationale behind this strategic decision is manifold: to enhance the impact of research taking place within ERCIM institutes and Working Groups by actively disseminating results towards industrial stakeholders; to expose researchers to ongoing research activities with an industrial take-up potential; and to help bridge the gap between research and industrial practice.
