Security Research in FP7

The EU is making more than 50 billion euros available for the 7th Research Framework Programme until 2013. A total of 1.4 billion euros will have been spent on research funding in the field of security between 2007 and 2013.

The 7th EU Research Framework Programme is the first to include civil security research as a separate subject area. The aim of the European security research programme is to develop new technologies and suitable accompanying measures to protect European society and citizens from threats such as terrorism, organized crime, natural disasters and industrial accidents more effectively while at the same time strengthening the competitiveness of European companies that make significant contributions to these objectives. The basic principles underlying the implementation of these activities will always be respect for the privacy of individuals and the protection of civil liberties.
