Under the umbrella of the Community of Users for Secure, Safe and Resilient Societies (CoU), DG HOME’s unit dealing with innovation and industry for security organised a virtual workshop on innovative counter-UAS solutions and strategies on Tuesday, 10 November 2020. The event brought together representatives of EU-funded Horizon 2020 and Internal Security Fund projects, as well as academia, European policymakers, practitioners, and industry. The focus of the workshop, which was organised around discussions of specific scenarios, was on innovation and thus for projects to demonstrate, how their specific solutions could fit into existing counter-UAS strategies.
CoU workshops are a crucial instrument through which the Commission collects input for the formulation of future funding priorities but also by which to foster exchange between relevant stakeholders. In this framework, ALADDIN coordinator presented the project, the concept and outcomes to a wide audience, using both slides and videos with simulated data to display the ALADDIN system in action!
