What happened at the conference “European Security Research – The Next Wave”?

The ‘European Security Research – The Next Wave’ conference event was recently held (4th-6th November 2015) in Dublin, Ireland with a primary aim to encourage greater engagement of experts from the European community involved in security emergency and crisis management. The event brought together over 150 experts from different backgrounds and experiences for knowledge exchange and highly interactive engagement over the 3 day event. The shared common aim was to learn from each other and obtain a more in-depth understanding of important European security related issues. Attending the event were experts from the field of emergency and crisis management first responders, standardisation, policy making, cyber security and from the European scientific and research community.
