There is no excerpt because this is a protected post.Read more
Though security is a field of study capable of diverse applications in daily life, security science is a young discipline requiring larger interdisciplinary effort. ESSENTIAL seeks to develop security science by addressing two of its main problems: the ad-hoc approach to security research and the growing complexity of the security environment. To do so, ESSENTIAL has set itself two main goals: a) to train inter-disciplinary security experts and professionals, to tackle security threats in a systematic manner and b) to increase societal resilience and security by addressing in an interdisciplinary manner 15 research topics, each associated with long-standing problems in the field of security science ranging from modeling security perception and democratizing intelligence to improving security and privacy in data ecosystems.
Different topics are being handled by combinations of different partner universities –each topic will require prior knowledge which is indicated in the profile of the Early Stage Researcher (ESR). Check whether you are eligible to apply and which position is most suitable for your qualifications, experience and research ambitions by going through the list of fifteen (15) ESR positions being made available.
Project duration 48 months
Number of fellows 15
The event will consist of each member of the ESSENTIAL team presenting their research, followed by an expert panel discussion on each topic. Please see here for more information.
Following our prior “Save the Date” announcement, we are delighted to now be able to provide more details about the event, including an initial programme (subject to change).
A copy of the current programme can be downloaded here: ESSENTIAL Conference Programme (Final).
