The Workshop, with participants both online and in-presence, had a morning session with the usual welcome and remarks and an introduction provided by the RiskPACC Coordinator Dr. Maike Vollmer.
Maike gave a general overview of the project explaining the state-of-the-art of RiskPACC and the next steps and results.

Selby Knudsen, from Trilateral Research and WP1 leader, and Vangelis Pitidis, from University of Warwick and WP2 leader, took then the floor and presented the results, outcomes and achievements of the first 10 months of the project.

Selby conducted the session entitled “Civil protection Perspectives of risk and disaster resilience: initial findings from the RiskPACC project“, presented the methodology (literature review, questionnaires, analysis, gap identification) used In the WP1, the key findings and results achieved.
Vangelis, with his session “Engaging citizens to expand understandings of risks and enhance urban resilience: Initial findings from the case studies of RiskPACC”presented the main outputs and achievement of his Work Package 2.

The last part of the morning session has been dedicated to the RiskPACC project sisters.

RiskPACC has five related projects:

LINKS “Strengthening links between technologies and society for European disaster resilience”
RESILOC – Resilient Europe and Societies by Innovating Local Communities
BUILDERS – Building Resilience in Europe
CORE (sCience& human factOr for Resilient sociEty)

The session started with Sara Bonati from University of Florence and Filippo Giacinti from the European Organisation for Security (EOS). They represented the LINKS Project while Karsten Uhing from Fraunhofer gave a detailed description of the RESILOC Project.
Tor-Olav Naevestad from BUILDERS, Marie-Christine Bonnamour from CORE and Alberto Pasquini from ENGAGE presented important and crucial topics and spotlighted potential connections and relationships between their projects and RiskPACC.

The afternoon session was focused on two different working group sessions.

AI-ARC Workshop on "Increasing situational awareness of coast and border guards to prevent illegal activities" in Karlskrona

The AI-ARC  “Artificial  Intelligence  based Virtual Control Room for the Arctic” project’s main objective is to create   an   innovative   and   user-friendly   AI   based   platform,   the   Virtual  Control  Room  (VCR),  that has  the  power  to  greatly  improve  maritime    situational    awareness,    decision-making,    communication,    available   rescue   resources,   and   thus   the   safety   of   all   maritime   actors,   particularly   in   the   Arctic   Sea. 

Workshop 02: Increasing situational awareness of Coast and Border Guards to prevent illegal activities was a two and a half-day workshop event that took place in Karlskrona, Sweden from the 26th – 28th of April 2022. It was co-organised by three AI-ARC project partners: Munster Technology University,  (Ireland), Laurea University of Applied  Sciences,  (Finland), and the  Swedish Coast Guard.  

The opening session served as an introduction to the workshop and provided an overview of the project to VIP guests from the SCG and the external advisory board.  Isto Mattila, Project coordinator of the AI-ARC Project and Director of R&D at Laurea University of Applied Sciences, welcomed all consortium partners and VIP guests to Workshop 2.  His presentation provided an overview of the project and informed attendees that word about the AI-ARC project is growing with increasing external interest   from prominent European organisations including the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA).      

The Swedish Coast Guard is a key consortium partner in the AI-ARC project and in her presentation, Director Therese Mattsson emphasised the important role that the Swedish Coast guard (SCG) plays in providing support to maritime authorities in the Baltic Sea. She outlined the daily roles and responsibilities of the SCG in addition to their facilities, system capabilities and assets which can operate in Arctic weather.   Timo Hellenberg and Professor Pekka Visuri (Hellenberg International) presented on the findings of their investigation into the Arctic Sea hijacking Incident which occurred in 2009 in the Baltic Sea. The Arctic Sea Incident served as a useful case study to demonstrate the challenges involved for Law enforcement agencies and CGs in identifying smuggling and other illegal activities.  Lastly, Dr. Adrian Hoppe (Fraunhofer) presented an overview of the VCR Display and the Digital Map Table software system. This system offers the AI-ARC a 2D and 3D solution for a shared maritime situational awareness picture.   

For the remainder of the workshop, participants engaged in small working groups, each consisting  of  Law  Enforcement  and  Coast  Guard  representatives,  to  address key issues relating to improving situational awareness and tackling illegal maritime activities in the Baltic Sea and Arctic/High North regions. The results of the group work sessions during the Karlskrona workshop have created a number of action points for the task leaders in WP3 including the integration of workshop outputs into the ongoing technical tasks, decisions surrounding the purchasing and storage of data, and the selection of use cases for the live demonstrations that are all due to take place in 2023.The latter task will involve detailed planning and coordination between WP2 and WP3 leaders in  addition  to  the  CG  partners who  will  host  the  demos.   

The successful completion of the AI-ARC Workshop 2 in Karlskrona served as a key project milestone (MS7). The workshop was an ideal opportunity for project partners to refine and clarify information surrounding the technical development of the project. The Karlskrona workshop enabled face-to-face discussions on a number of key issues relating to the project’s progression. As a result of these productive interactions, partner engagement has stepped up in intensity and will continue online.  

Finally, it is worthy highlighting that for many of the project partners, Workshop 2 in  Karlskrona, Sweden was the first opportunity that consortium members had for a face-to-face meeting owing  to  previous  travel  restrictions  because  of  the  Covid-19  global  pandemic.  Therefore, it can be concluded that the workshop was a valuable opportunity for participants to make important networking connections with other project partners in addition to providing fruitful information outputs for task leaders and contributing to the ongoing progression of the AI-ARC project.    

The next face-to-face consortium meeting is in the early stages of being planned for later this year (November 2022) in Germany.  Regular consortium meetings in person will assist  with  ensuring  that  the  project’s  momentum  continues  on  track  and  consortium  partners  keep  moving forward with the work.

FRONTEX: International Conferenceon Biometrics for Borders

FRONTEX is going to organise – next 9 and 10 October in Warsaw – a conference dedicated to the use of biometrics in the context of border control. This year’s thematic focus will be on morphing and its possible implications for border security. The conference seeks to support the objectives of the European Commission as outlined in the 2016 Action Plan to strengthen the European response to travel document fraud. Through the action plan the European Commission aims to strengthen R&D activities in the area of breeder documents and document verification, including addressing the issue of morphing, in the framework of the Horizon 2020 programme for Secure Societies 2018-2020.

In order to underline the importance of both technological innovations and possible abuse of technologies dealing with biometrics, an exhibition is planned as a side event on day 2 of the conference to connect end-users with technologies and to provide an informal networking environment for all stakeholders present.

The exhibition will go beyond the thematic focus of the conference and provide Industry showcasing new and existing technologies dealing with the use of advanced biometrics in the context of border control, and; Research community detailing relevant research projects focusing on the subversion/exploitation of biometrics and the development of associated tools and/or methods capable of detecting and/or defeating such attacks (or preventing them altogether).

The technology or project showcased does not need to have an actual application in current border controls, as long as speakers and exhibitors are able to showcase a technology or research project of potential relevance to the current or future border control domain. Topics may vary from solutions under development targeting morphing, to topics from the field of artificial intelligence/machine learning, for example deep-fake technologies (e.g. demonstrating biometrics vulnerabilities through reverse-engineering, methods of identifying editing/tampering, etc.), to name only a few.


Important deadlines: should you wish to exhibit during the conference, then please send  your offer to  by 28 June 2019 (23:59 CET). You are kindly invited to include a description of the products/innovations you would like to showcase, as well as an estimation of the space required.


The received offers will be evaluated and selected based on their relevance to the theme of conference and in a way that ensures that different thematic areas are adequately represented. The outcome of the evaluation of the submitted offers will be announced no later than 12 July 2019.


Details on the venue as well as other logistical information will be sent only to participants who have successfully registered. No fees will be charged for registration and exhibiting space. Exhibitors will be asked to cover the costs of travel, their own accommodation and additional costs incurred in exhibit activities.

HERMENEUT Conference: Protecting intangible assets from cyber attacks

The HERMENEUT Consortium is pleased to invite you to our HERMENEUT Conference on Protecting Intangible Assets from Cyber Attacks.

Join us on Monday, 3 June for the last HERMENEUT project conference as we take a look back at the ptoject and evaluate and discuss cyber threats and the potential impacts these could have on the value of assets like reputation and intellectual property rights.

Cyber attacks can harm intangible assets like reputation and intellectual property rights (IPR). There is severe imbalance between the
efficiency of attacks and adequacy of defences, due in part to the lack of quantitative information for decision makers to optimise
security investments. The primary focus of the Hermeneut project has been to model the increasing cyber threats and the potential
impacts these could have on the value of these assets.

This conference will be an opportunity to hear from the international project teams, to discuss research and methodologies, and to hear presentations of their findings. The conference also includes presentations from economists, cyber security and behavioural experts, risk modellers and security specialists on the increased importance of the three main intangible assets categories - IP, value from personal data and economic competencies such as specialist skills and business models. The event will conclude with an opportunity to explore the decision support tool and discuss its application in two key industry sectors.

FRONTEX: Dialogue on Technology Foresight for Border Security

FRONTEX has recently published a new Invitation for Industry - Dialogue on Technology Foresight for Border Security. The Technology Foresight is one of the tools used by the Agency to regularly assess the future of technology and science. The overarching goal is the identification of technologies that may, in a medium or long-term perspective, impact the EU borders and the Border and Coast Guard community the most. It is aimed at the idea of capacity building, not simply forecasting.

In this spirit, Frontex is organizing a dialogue session with industry representatives who will present foresight methodologies/procedures they have developed and/or follow. In addition, invited industry representatives are expected to also briefly present areas of research or future technological concepts that have been identified through technology foresight as potentially having a significant impact on border security in the medium to long-term (5 – 20 years). It is important to note that only technological solutions at TRL 4 (technology validated in a lab environment) or below shall be presented or discussed during this future-oriented event because they are within the scope of our technology foresight.

This dialogue session will be an important step towards setting up a technology foresight component in support of the European Border and Coast Guard community. Accordingly, the Frontex Research and Innovation Unit is inviting industry to send their applications for this specific event to by 07 April 2019 at 18,00.

In your application, please include a short description of:

  • the experience of your company in Technology Foresight;
  • existing products/services (reports, studies, technical solutions, etc.) your company has already delivered based on Technology Foresight;
  • background/experience of the experts who would participate in this dialogue session.
The received applications will be evaluated based on their relevance to the theme of this dialogue session. Depending on the outcome of the evaluation of the submitted applications, which will be announced by 14 April 2019, and the interest of potential contributors, the event is envisaged to take place on 16 May 2019, in Warsaw, Poland (Frontex HQ). During the event, the selected entities will be allocated 30 minutes for their presentations. Based on the outcome of this first dialogue meeting we foresee the possibility of hosting a second Industry dialogue on Technology Foresight, depending on the level of interest from both the EBCG community and Industry.
