«COOPERATION THEME 10 SECURITY (European Commission C(2007)5765 of 29 November 2007) FP 7 Cooperation Work Programme: Security This Work Programme ...»

-- [ Page 5 ] --

Expected impact: Actions in this area will provide the (adapted) technology basis and relevant knowledge for security capabilities needed in this (and also other) mission(s), as required by integrating industry and/or (private and/or public) end users, while achieving a significant improvement with respect to performance, reliability, speed and cost. At the same time, actions will reflect the mutual dependency of technology, organisational dynamics, human factors, societal issues as well as related legal aspects. This will reinforce European industry’s potential to create important market opportunities and establish leadership, and it will ensure sufficient awareness and understanding of all relevant issues for the take-up of their outcome (e.g. regarding harmonisation and standardisation, potential classification requirements, international co-operation needs, communication strategies etc.) as well as for further research needs with a view to future security Work Programmes.

The Security Research Call 1 calls for the following actions:

Activity 4: Restoring security and safety in case of crisis The first challenge of this activity is to ensure that governments, first responders and societies are better prepared prior to unpredictable catastrophic incidents using new, innovative and affordable solutions. The second challenge is to improve the tools, infrastructures, procedures and organisational frameworks to respond and recover more efficiently and effectively both during, and after, an incident.

Three areas are to be addressed, namely incidents caused by: (1) terrorist acts and (organised) crime, including the use of conventional explosive weapons and weapons of mass destruction and disruption (e.g. CBRNE); (2) natural disasters including pandemics; and (3) major industrial accidents or technological disasters. Many of the relevant capabilities would also be suitable for deployment in humanitarian crises.

Area 4.1: Demonstration projects No demonstration projects foreseen in this activity for Security Research Call 1.

See also chapter IV Indicative priorities for future calls.

Area 4.2: Integration projects Expected impact: While taking into account the mutual dependency of technology, organisational dynamics and human factors as well as related legal issues, actions in this area will achieve a substantial improvement with respect to performance, reliability, speed and cost.

They will also identify standardisation requirements and provide information concerning further research needs with a view to future security Work Programmes.

Through the performance of the integrated technology system, actions will allow product and service developers to verify and optimise their technologies at all development stages. This will reinforce their potential to create important market opportunities for European industry and establish leadership.

Actions will demonstrate the technology based potential for enhancing the effectiveness of European authorities in implementing their security policies and the capabilities of security forces In addition, the actions will provide guidance for their implementation, including privacy relevant aspects.

Activity 6: Security and society Technology is an important tool in preventing, responding, managing and mitigating potential security threats to European societies, but it is only part of the effective response. It must be applied in balanced combination with organisational processes and human intervention, which all determine each other and must be addressed by the actions. Cultural background plays an essential role, and also in balancing security as a societal value against other values. Thus research into political, social and human issues is required to complement the technology oriented research. When human beings are involved (as users), gender differences may exist.
