Increased Innovation uptake

Addressing 'go-to-market strategies' aspects of technology and product development; Increased industrialisation, commercialisation, adoption and deployment of successful outcomes of security research.

Expected Outcomes: Projects’ results are expected to contribute to the following outcomes:

  • Common user/functional needs for innovative technology solutions for situation awareness in the field of civil protection;
  • Tested and validated capacity to develop and produce in Europe technology prototypes for situation awareness in the field of civil protection that meet the needs of the EU user community;
  • Consolidation of an EU market (including demand and supply) for situation awareness systems in the field of civil protection that can articulate alternative options for uptake in function of different industrialisation needs, commercialisation needs, acquisition needs, deployment needs and additional funding needs (beyond R&I funding).
  • Better understanding of the potential value of standardised solutions and certification schemes for the demand and supply actors in the security market taking into account the specificities of the different policy areas and priorities addressed by the Cluster 3 Work Programme and in the light of the distinctive features of the EU Security market; 
  • Stronger capabilities for EU security practitioners to address security challenges92 built on standardised solutions and certifications schemes that leverage the regulatory, policy, operational and market context of such areas; 
  • Plausible pathways to the development of standardised security solutions (including deiure and de-facto approaches) that contemplate the different profiles and roles of actors that must intervene in the process as well as the different instruments available, such as the EU standardisation system, public procurement or security research, among others;
  • More efficient, harmonised and EU-wide endorsed processes for the development and adoption of standardised security solutions and/or certification schemes by security technology developers and users in high priority security areas; 
  • Better understanding of the obstacles that impede the development and adoption of standards in the different areas of security as well as of the necessary measures to overcome these;
