PRoTECT online seminar – session 3

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

Session 3
The PRoTECT  project’s perspective on the protection of public spaces
How to assess technologies to protect public spaces? The PRoTECT Technology Assessment Framework. Public announcement of the selected solutions for demonstration in the five PRoTECT partner cities

  • 17 July, 10:00 CEST


Devising hypothetical threat scenarios in specific public spaces that are potential soft targets for a terrorist attack can greatly  help municipalities assess existing solutions to prevent or mitigate such attacks. The PRoTECT Technology Evaluation Framework (TEF) is a unique tool for evaluating such solutions and/or technologies, which local authorities can tailor to their specific needs and vulnerabilities. This session will present the Request for Information procedure to identify potential solutions to be demonstrated in the five PRoTECT partner cities, the use and application of the TEF, and the technological solutions selected by municipalities.
