MEDI@4SEC, a European funded research project for social media in public secuurity, brings together communities, policing and policy makers to better understand how social media can be used more effectively to tackle crime and the fear of crime, while at the same time preserving the freedoms offered by social media.

The MEDI@4SEC project has been exploring the evolution of social media in DIY Policing, Riots & Mass Gatherings, Dark Web, Everyday Policing and Trolling. Understanding of needs, knowledge sharing and recommendations have been drawn to better facilitate the work of authorities, but also reveal the impact of social media on society.

The Innovative Market Solutions Workshop and the Industry Day running in parallel, will bring together all these results and focus on practical steps forward on the usage of social media. During the day solutions, tools and innovative processes will be presented and showcased. Best practices and upcoming trends in technology will be discussed and debated among practitioners and solution providers.

What is the future for social media monitoring? How will AI feed into the practices of public authorities? How do we ensure protection of citizens’ rights and will innovations like augmented and virtual reality be trusted?

Join us for an exciting last workshop organised by the MEDI@4SEC consortium.
