It’s our pleasure to invite you to the kick-off of our new initiative in the area of information security research in the Netherlands: The "Nationaal samenwerkingsVerband Security Onderzoek" (NVSO).
We, the University of Twente, TNO and Philips Research, believe that The Netherlands currently lack a unified vision regarding the focus of national information security research. It is our conviction that such a vision would greatly optimize the overall benefits of said research for Dutch industry. Therefore, we have initiated a collaboration to develop such a vision which will, especially when complemented with several other important players, eventually serve as the national institute for information security research.
The NVSO kick-off will take place on Friday November 4th at the University of Twente. The objective of this event is to inform a broad audience of the initiative as well as to present a first glance at our vision on information security research in the Netherlands.
Registration starts at 10.30 a.m. in building "De Waaier" (building 12 on the sitemap). A route description and a sitemap can be found on our website: http://www.utwente.nl/dienstverlening/route/plattegrond.pdf.
We would appreciate if you could let us know before October 28th (by e-mail to L.J.Morsink@ewi.utwente.nl) whether you will be attending this kick-off.
We hope you will be able to attend this event and enjoy the interesting program we have prepared for you!
