On 16-18 October 2018, the global partners behind M-Sec will gather in Barcelona, Spain, for their first in-person meeting.
The partners will travel from over Europe and Japan to meet in the â€˜Poble Nouâ€™ district of Barcelona. This neighbourhood, whose name aptly means â€˜New townâ€™ in Catalan, was originally an area penned for industrial growth during the 1800s. In the year 2000, it was the focus of @22, a new social innovation plan which aimed to divide the area into 5 areas of growth: Information and Computer Technology (ICT), Bio-Medical, Design, Energy, and Media. Today the area houses +400 startups and technology centres, now well-known for being the cityâ€™s epicentre of innovation and progress. The meeting will take place at Worldline premises (EU coordination of the M-Sec project).
The two-day M-Sec meeting will focus on the smooth logistical management of the project across borders, time-zones and entities. The six M-Sec Use Cases will be presented and discussed, as well as the strategy for citizen engagement. This will result in a stronger cross-border collaboration between the partners and allow M-Sec to get off to a running start.
