Presentation Transcript

The European Security Research and Innovation Forum (ESRIF) established in September 2007, is an informal and voluntary group of experts coming from the demand and supply side of security technologies and solutions as well as from societal organizations.

  • ESRIF has 64 formal members, though more than 600 additional people have registered as contributors to ESRIF’s 11 working groups. This gives ESRIF’s work a broad basis.
  • It brings together experts, nominated by their governments, from the public sector, the private sector, research establishments and societal organizations. These leading experts cover a broad range of expertise and experience.
  • As a broadly-based public-private dialogue, charged with presenting decision-makers with practical and innovative proposals to improve European security through research and innovation, ESRIF represents a new mode in European governance.

what is the joint security research and innovation agenda
What is the Joint Security Research and Innovation Agenda?

ESRIF has been tasked with developing a ‘Joint Security Research and Innovation Agenda’ for Europe: a strategic roadmap for security research and related measures that will bring greater coherence and efficiency to the sector, while promoting innovation. Specifically ESRIF addresses:

  • mid-term and long-term security perspectives (up to 20 years),
  • European, national and regional perspectives,
  • bringing the demand and supply sides together to focus on requirements for research,
  • societal and technological aspects of security research,
  • the promotion of innovation to lay the foundation for a European Security Market that exploits economies of scale at European level,
  • guidance for all stakeholders who prepare security-relevant research programmes in Europe.

complexity and interdependence
Complexity and interdependence

In line with the European Security Strategy and based on an assessment of relevant policy documents, ESRIF perceives a broad spectrum of threats and risks to European security. This includes:

  • organised crime,
  • corruption and money laundering,
  • sabotage,
  • radicalisation and extremism,
  • terrorist acts,
  • proliferation of weapons of mass destruction/disruption,
  • regional conflicts and state failure,
  • natural disasters and pandemics,
  • man-made disasters such as major industrial accidents,
  • unintended consequences of the introduction and use of new technologies,
  • reduced access to energy and natural resources, all of which may result in humanitarian crises.

Not all of these are necessarily linked to the EU’s territory, but due to their interdependences and consequences they might still affect the security of Europe’s citizens. Special risks arise from the increasing complexity of modern societies and the growing interdependence of economic and technological systems.ESRIF’s task is to present by the end of 2009 a widely-shared perspective on European securityresearch needs and priorities.

european union turkey research partnership
European Union – Turkey research partnership
  • Today we can witness the growing importance of a strong partnership between Turkey and the European Union in research and technology.
  • Research cooperation can be seen as a pre-accession tool and a means to enhance the relationship between Turkey and the E.U. by working together on global challenges.
  • First step  June 1st 2007, Turkey’s request to associate to the Seventh Framework Program for Research or FP7; since then Turkey is successfully participating in all the FP7 thematic areas.
  • The cooperation takes place over a wide range of subjects which can help Turkey’s further integration into The European research Area (ERA).
  • Consortium Research Project Proposal (FP7 Call 2009), led by Middle East Technical University, on the subject “Framework for Complex Emergency Management Training” – FERMAT.
  • Turkey also increased its research capacity and competitiveness through the European Technology Platforms, currently being involved in 13 platforms.
  • For Europe, Turkey is a relevant and serious research partner.

Another step in growing a stronger partnership between the EU and Turkey – Turkey’s contribution to the ESRIF Project.

Congratulations to Mr. Seyit Demirci, Head of Department, Directorate General for Security, Ministry of Interior, for representing Turkey in the ESRIF Project.
