Research area:

Terrorist attacks in public places and especially in public transport have dramatically increased the need for prevention. As a consequence, the application of advanced prevention systems in public transport has become imperative. However, today’s solutions are lacking. This is why the EU-funded PREVENT project is proposing an advanced system that enables security forces to promptly detect suspicious individuals and dangerous items. The project will apply six common security scenarios that capture threats and vulnerabilities. The project will create an interactive online instrument aiming at the identification of a ‘Common Challenge’. This ‘Common Challenge’ will serve as the basis for an advanced security system entirely compatible with the EU’s privacy and data protection rules.




This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 833444
