Research: Next EU Call for Security Proposals

Detection and prevention capabilities ‘at street level’ figure heavily in Commission’s next annual call for security research

BRUSSELS – The European Commission will launch its second annual Security Research call for proposals (SRC02) in early autumn, setting aside EUR 119 million to cover 26 research topics. SECURITY EUROPE was shown an advance copy of the all-but-finalised draft call. Similar to SRC01 in 2007, which set aside approximately EUR 175 million for 47 topics, the new call will devote most of its budget – about 90 percent – to small- and medium-sized research and technology efforts, known as capability and integration projects, respectively.
