International Advisory Board meeting for the BASIC project ' A Turning Point: Creating a Sustainable Security Architecture in Europe'
IAB met today to give feedback on a paper produced by Dr Gry Thomasen, Senior Policy Fellow & Programme Manager. The project focuses on climate challenges for security in Europe, and the need for the new security architecture.
The SHAPEDEM-EU project, bringing together 12 members of the consortium, across Europe and beyond, had its first mid-term review meeting with the European Commission and appointed by the Commission independent reviewers. The Steering Committee of the project, involving all team leads, presented its work on various Work Packages, and the project's cross-cutting issues including digital transformation, ethics and gender. The Commission representative was very pleased to see the project's progress, including all the extra activities that participants initiated themselves, going well beyond the project's call, to ensure knowledge co-production and its dissemination further afield.
