SHIELD4CROWD is a European project on European pre-commercial procurement and technological innovation to protect public spaces.
SHIELD4CROWD brings together security practitioners across Europe to identify common vulnerabilities posing threats to the protection of public spaces. Through an iterative process, the project will prioritise relevant challenges and threats, identifying technology gaps and assessing current market opportunities.
The Security Observatory joined the project as a member of the User Observatory Group. The members of the group actively participate in the project by sharing their knowledge and experience so that the project results meet the needs of the end users as much as possible. A representation of our think-tank will take part in an international workshop to be held in Slovakia on 10-12 October.
