Our societies face growing threats, from natural disasters to crime and terrorism, that put our safety and security at risk. International, EU, and national policies are dealing with the question how societies can prepare themselves and manage emerging risks. They cover multiple sectors and feature a huge range of operational procedures for preparedness, prevention, detection, surveillance, response, and recovery. To support these policies, organisations around the EU are commissioning ground-breaking research, developing new technologies and delivering training projects.
This information can be helpful to our users who are policy makers, scientists, industry and practitioners, such as emergency services, firefighters, and police. However, with so much information available, and the complexity of policy frameworks, it can be difficult to find the information you need. The Community of Users addresses this by making the latest policies, research, and projects accessible and more visible to a broad range of stakeholders.
