Description

Symposium Aim

The Centre for Risk and Decision Sciences (CERIDES) is a focal point for Security and Safety related issues in South Eastern Europe.  CERIDES has already attracted more than 1.4 million Euro in EU competitive funding, it employs a number of young researchers and it has taken part (currently takes part in 4) in 13 EU projects (Horizon 2020, Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation, DG ECHO, DG HOME, DG JUSTICE, ERASMUS +).  As a form of dissemination of its accumulated expertise, CERIDES plans for mid-November 2018 a number of activities, including an International Symposium.

 

CERIDES’ aim is to organize a Symposium that (a) will give the floor to local, state and industrial, partners in the areas of security and safety to communicate their research needs, (b) to provide a forum for high level international academic communication and dissemination and (c) a networking opportunity for the participants.  The Symposium language is English.

 

Dr Nikos Christodoulides, Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Cyprus will deliver the Keynote Speech of the Conference on the “Current Developments of the National Security Policy “.
