Security for smart and safe cities, including for public spaces (Pre-announcement)

In the cities, public spaces such as malls, open crowded gathering areas and events, and non-restricted areas of transport infrastructures, constitute “soft targets”, that is potential, numerous targets spread across the urban area and subject to “low cost” attacks strongly impacting the citizens.

Human factors, and social, societal, and organisational aspects to solve issues in fighting against crime and terrorism (Pre-announcement)

The free and democratic EU society, based on the rule of law, mobility across national borders, globalised communication and finance infrastructure, provides many opportunities to its people.

Security is a key factor to ensure a high quality of life and to protect our infrastructure through preventing and tackling common threats.

Human factors, and social, societal, and organisational aspects for disaster-resilient societies

The resilience of societies heavily depends on how their citizens behave individually or collectively, and how governments and civil society organisations design and implement policies for mitigating risks, preparing for, reacting to, overcoming, and learning from disasters.

Integrated home renovation services

Many project promoters – public authorities, individuals or businesses – lack the skills and capacity to set up, implement and finance ambitious low-energy and clean energy building projects. In addition, many project developers still face obstacles in raising the necessary up-front costs for their projects – particularly as the small-size of investments and the lack of turnkey solutions increase implementation cost – and lack access to attractive and adequate financing products from the market.
