The SASCE, funded by the European Union’s Internal Security Fund, was launched in April 2021 and ended in June 2023.

It was a multi-layered project with the aim to dramatically increase security in and around places of worship, as well as within and between Christian, Buddhist, Muslim and Jewish communities. Building and expanding on the good practices recommended by the Commission for the protection of public spaces, but also relying on the knowledge and expertise of well-organized communities and security groups, the consortium developed concrete tools, which, associated with training, wider communications and the use of technology solutions, were instrumental in achieving a high-level of protection of EU citizens, in full cooperation with authorities throughout the EU.
