Besides distributing promotional material of the project, Alexandre Almeida made an intervention at the Networking Session under the theme “Models, tools and challenges of digital civic engagement”. https://ec.europa.eu/digital-agenda/events/cf/ict2015/item-display.cfm?id=15761
Alexandre Almeida highlighted the need of the CSOs be involved at the 5 cycles of (security) research, namely:

The audience of about 50 participants agreed on that and the discussion was then directed to the tools and mechanisms that can be used to get more involvement of CSO.
