Security for all
The Security theme is precisely delineated. Even within this strict definition, the theme is still extremely broad; ranging from defending against external threats, preventing organised crime, protecting critical infrastructures and digital security to safety and security on the streets. This requires the use of the latest scientific insights, (key) technologies and applications, but with adequate attention for ethical and societal aspects. Furthermore, broad combinations of technological, societal and organisational knowledge areas will often be required. Multiple scientific disciplines and top sectors must work together to achieve this.
