The objective of the workshop organized by the "Security Research and Development" Unit (H.3) within DG Enterprise & Industry is to discuss the roadmap and priorities that should be taken into consideration for a future FP7 European R&D demonstration programme (large scale research project) on "Logistic and Supply Chain Security".

This workshop is expected to bring together a wide range of stakeholders in the area of logistic and supply security, including representatives of government, customs and law enforcement institutions, standardization organizations, international shippers, forwarders, transporters and logistic companies, terminal operators, academia and industry.

The workshop will take place on January 31st, 2012 in Brussels in the Centre Albert Borschette (Rue Froissart, 36, B-1040 Brussels).

The agenda will be divided into four sessions:

  • panel discussion of related policies at EU and international levels
  • a review of on-going EU-funded R&D activities in the area of the supply chain security
  • presentation of preparatory work on road maps to define the demonstration programme
  • debate and discussion (via three parallel sessions) of what should be tested and validated in this sector

Details of the workshop’s (draft) agenda, which will be updated as we move closer to the event, can be found below.
