Efus took part in the colloquium on “Europe as a space for intercultural dialogue and mediation” organised on 26-27 April at the University of Minho in Braga (Portugal) by the CReA project, in which it is a partner.

Efus' working group on senior citizens reflects on the links between security and mobility
A major challenge for our ageing societies, the mobility of seniors is too often considered as a technical issue only, i.e. related to transport, facilities and infrastructure. But anti-social behaviour, aggressions or petty crime can hamper seniors' mobility. Such is the conclusion of an article drafted by Efus' working group on senior citizens at the request of the French branch of the worldwide Age-friendly Cities network of the World Health Organization (WHO), which was published in April in the magazine Les Essentiels Amis des Aînés. ...
How urban security benefits from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research programme
The European Union's Horizon 2020 programme (H2020) is the largest coordinated research effort ever undertaken with a record budget of €80 billion and a duration of seven years (2014-2020). In particular, H2020 “is developing new technologies to protect our societies, while respecting privacy and upholding fundamental rights – two core values at the heart of EU security research.” In this framework, Efus is associated with four H2020-funded projects: Medi@4sec on social media and security, MINDb4ACT on preventing radicalisation in prison, PRACTICIES on preventing radicalisation among young people, and CITYCoP on new technologies and community policing. ...
