EU acts to improve protection of citizens with security research

Friday, 6 February 2004, 10:05 AM EST

The European Commission has presented the key elements for a test phase or "Preparatory Action" on security research. The Communication, entitled "Towards a programme to advance European security through Research and Technology", explains why security research needs to be co-ordinated at the EU level.

It also presents key priority areas which need to be addressed such as: protection against terrorism (including bio terrorism); improving crisis management; and enhancing the security, reliability, protection and interoperability of communication systems, thus making it easier for civilian and military authorities across the EU to co-ordinate their actions. A 65 million budget has been earmarked for the initial phase (2004 2006).

The Preparatory Action should lead to a full European Security Research Programme starting in 2007. This should bring together the necessary know-how and investment for the joint development of technologies which are critical for Europe's security. In the long term, it should also contribute to enhancing Europe's industrial competitive edge in these areas.
