M-Sec, an EU-Japan collaborative project

M-Sec, an EU-Japan collaborative project, is organising a series of Webinars to promote the project's results and collect feedback on future research developments
The M-Sec project is a collaborative project between the EU and Japan, jointly funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme and by the Commissioned Research of National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) of Japan.
The main goal of the M-Sec project is to develop a multi-layer secure IoT framework that is compatible with the transfer and processing of personal data between the EU and Japan, upon which it is possible to build smart city applications.
Two smart cities are involved in M-Sec - Santander and Fujisawa - and to test and validate the research conducted in the scope of the project, 5 use cases (https://www.msecproject.eu/use-cases) are now being piloted by EU-Japanese teams.
With the aim of further promoting the research conducted in the scope of the project and, at the same time, collect feedback from end-users of the M-Sec framework, the project will organise a series of webinars on GDPR & APPI's regulatory challenges in modern smart cities and on several components of the M-Sec framework, such as its IoT, cloud, middleware, and application security level layers.
These webinars will be run between mid-September and mid-December 2020. More information and registrations on this link.
