Title: Enhancing European Coordination for National Research Programmes in the Area of Security at Major Events
Grant agreement no: 285099
Duration: 1 March 2012 - 31 May 2014
Enhancing European Coordination for National Research Programmes in the Area of Security at Major Events – THE HOUSE is aimed at strengthening the ERA on Major Events security by applying the research coordination tools/methodologies developed during seven years of activity within the projects EU-SEC and EU-SEC II. THE HOUSE builds on the assumption that Major Events are “windows of opportunity” to increase inter-agency/intra-agency coordination at national and regional level and they are suitable to have a long-lasting legacy on the national security planning of the hosting countries.
Capitalising on the existing EU-SEC II platform of cooperation, THE HOUSE gathers a wide Consortium of 24 national public end-users. The main Consortium’s goal is to achieve a harmonised implementation approach to security research in the field of Major Events in Europe via the European House of Major Events Security (the House). The coordinated research resulting from the application of the House coordination tools/methodologies to specific Major Events in Europe will benefit the partners in terms of provision of a common European taxonomy, planning and evaluation standards elaborated to respond to the specific needs of the security end-users groups.
In addition, THE HOUSE will foster the advancement towards the adoption of a common policing approach across Europe and will facilitate the practical implementation of the most recent EU policies in the field, such as the Stockholm Programme.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 285099
