The PRECRISIS (PRotECting public spaces thRough Integrated Smarter Innovative Security) project will strengthen the protection of
public spaces by preventing terrorist attacks and violent crimes and mitigating their impacts. PRECRISIS will promote integrated
smarter innovative security through the empowerment of law enforcement authorities, first responders, local managers of public
spaces and related security stakeholders, enhancing public-private cooperation. PRECRISIS will develop, test, and roll out innovative,
sustainable, and effective AI-based digital solutions and practical toolkits, in full compliance with ethical standards and related
legislation on the protection of personal data, by integrating existing expertise, best practices and privacy-by-design approaches to
make public spaces more secure.
Technological innovation is delivered by the PRECRISIS Platform, which will provide identification of potential vulnerabilities
connected to public spaces and a real-time simulation of plausible scenarios before, during and after terrorist attacks or severe
violent incidents. The technology platform is complemented by the PRECRISIS Toolkit, delivering essential components for key
stakeholders, providing the next generation of practical protective security tools for public spaces through a full range of policies,
plans, training and exercising programmes. Taken together, the PRECRISIS Platform and Toolkit provide the essential system of
collective measures needed to better protect public spaces from all manner of contemporary security hazards.
PRECRISIS is delivered by a unique, multi-disciplinary consortium of 9 partners representing 7 EU member states, with a broad EU
perspective. Combining a rich and diverse mix of expertise across the public space protective security landscape, the PRECRISIS
partnership brings together an outstanding and internationally recognised team to deliver significant improvements to the
protection of public spaces
