On 6 and 7 February 2017, the EU Liaison Office of the Autonomous Province of Trento organized a mission in Brussels for the Engineering and Information Science Department of the University of Trento. The mission's aim was to explore and raised awareness about some EU funding opportunities on the use of big data in the areas of security and civil protection. Within the mission have been carried on targeted meetings with EU officials from the Directorates General for Migration and Internal Affairs and Humanitarian aid and civil protection of the European Commission.

This initiative has allowed participants to increased awareness of the existing opportunities and to define the research paths of the University of Trento in this field.
