Join the “ASSERT Database of Experts in Societal Security”

The European Commission funded ASSERT project is looking to recruit experts in ‘societal security’ to a new expert database.

Membership of the database is free and provides experts with opportunities to keep up to date with latest developments in societal security, to interact and share knowledge with other experts in societal security, and to participate in a fully funded certified ‘Masterclass in Societal Security’.

Information about how to join the ASSERT database can be found on the ASSERT Database of Experts in Societal Security.

Please note that to join the ASSERT database you are required to read the ASSERT Data Processing Statement.
