Policy and research in security

The EU’s security missions


The Security Research programme is based on the EU’s four broad security missions. Each of these is supported by cross-cutting research projects which are either multi-disciplinary in nature or promote cross-border R&D coordination and networking activities.

The resulting technologies apply to both “hard security” functions (critical infrastructure protection, border management, etc.) and to service-oriented ones such as first-responder capabilities, public transport security, civil disaster planning, crisis management and emergency communications.
