M-Sec joins discussions on innovation with the EU, Japan and Korea

M-Sec networked and shared ideas with similar cross-border initiatives at the session at the session ‘EU, Japan and Korea collaboration for breakthrough innovation’.

Europe, Japan and Korea are strategic partners to address the world’s current challenges such as global warming, economic crisis, security threats, inequality, natural disasters and ageing society.

On 3 December, professionals from Europe, Japan and Korea met at the event ‘EU, Japan and Korea collaboration for breakthrough innovation’, to share best practices and success stories in the spheres of IoT, cloud computing, 5G, satellite networks, big data and artificial intelligence. The outcomes, challenges and funding opportunities of existing projects (including M-Sec) were presented and discussed.

During the M-Sec presentation, we were able to share the mission of M-Sec, which is to create multi-layered security technologies to ensure hyper-connected smart cities. We were also able to talk about the use cases which will soon be tested in the cities of Fujisawa, Japan, and Santander, Spain.

The meeting took place in Vienna, Austria, as an official event of ICT 2018: Imagine Digital – Connect Europe. The agenda of the meeting can be found here.

Finally, the main takeaways from the event were that:

1) Cities are unique
2) Cities are aware of the power of IoT for efficiency
4) The value is in the ecosystem
5) City scale test beds are important
