“Creativity, Innovation, Research and Technology in internal security area”

The Estonian Academy of Security Sciences held  an International Erasmus and Teaching Staff Week “Creativity, Innovation, Research and Technology in internal security area” , which was  held between the 1st and 4th of May 2018 in Tallinn, Estonia.

This International Week was targeted towards administrative and teaching staff dealing with international projects, research, innovation and e-learning.

At the EASS we believe that innovation is a foundation of learning. The goal of the International Week is to present new innovative technology trends as well as to introduce ongoing and future research and development projects. The participants also get the change to introduce their new project ideas to colleagues all over Europe visiting our international week.

We are pleased to welcome you to participate in our Academy’s annual innovation day. This is already the eighth spring we bring you news, developments and bright ideas from the area of technology and innovation that guide us both in our everyday and work lives.

This year’s subtopic is “Man or Machine?”, and throughout the day we will seek answers to the question of what is the balance between technological improvement and human capabilities?
