PRoTECT online seminar – session 2

“Technological and human-centred solutions to protect public spaces against terrorist threats”

Session 2 – Case studies:
The protection of public spaces at  practitioner level
Existing practices used at the local level for the protection of public spaces

  • 16 July, 10:00 CEST


“There is no one single solution available, conversely, multiple methods and techniques can be put in place to guarantee safety and security in public spaces. The techniques range from architectural design in order to rethink the design of public spaces keeping security into account in continuity to emerging technologies such as AI and predictive surveillance. Moreover, whenever new technologies could appear to be expensive in cost and questionable regarding privacy, or when it could be difficult to rethink and re-project public spaces, building an action plan in order to mitigate, prevent and manage crime events would be a viable solution” (PRoTECT Best Practices and Technologies).

This session will present an overview of the PRoTECT best practices  and case studies implemented by cities for the  protection of  public spaces.
