Led by one or several researchers from PEC partners, a thematic semester has the following objectives:
- to strengthen the visibility and scientific activity of teams working on a given cybersecurity subject;
- to strengthen technology transfer activity through the development of platforms or proofs of concept;
- to carry out a strategic reflection on the theme, which will take the form of a white book intended to be widely disseminated and which will be used to steer funding by the PEC;
- to provide scientific formation and information for students and for the general public.
To this end, a thematic semester is made up of a series of scientific events such as colloquia, conferences and working group meetings. There is a with thematic coherence between these events that are organized over a period of 3 to 6 months. These activities are complemented by short or longer term invitations of researchers and other events that may be organized in cooperation with the Rennes ecosystem.
