METICOS at the RDI Days of MEDEA project

We are very happy to announce that METICOS consortium will participate in MEDEA project’s RDI Day focused on Border Management.

The event will take place virtually on the 9th of March, 2022 and will gather security practitioners and solution providers in the field of Border Management and Surveillance.

METICOS will present its’ solutions as well as its’ innovative approach to practitioners, end-users, and other relevant stakeholders.

As part of engaging with a critical mass of security practitioners, MEDEA responses to all security threats common to the Mediterranean and Black Sea region. MEDEA holds RDI Days for each Thematic Community of Practitioners (TCP) to allow new technologies in that area to be presented to practitioners. The idea is to give the floor to industries in order for them to present their technologies to fill gaps that certain projects/solution providers are trying to fill.

From the beginning of the project, the TCP for “Border Management and Surveillance” (TCP2) has identified and documented several capability gaps. In the last three months, MEDEA consortium has launched an Open Call to Academia and Industry for Ideas and Solutions. During the Research, Development and Innovation Day, responders to the open call (security stakeholders, industries, academia, research organisations and SMEs) will be able to present pertinent solutions to MEDEA members and practitioners in high level of operational details.

The registration is open and available via this registration form. Additional information can be found on the MEDEA project website – here!
