The PRECRISIS Project is implemented by a consortium of nine partners operating in seven EU member states including Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Germany, Greece, and Italy:
- Based in Estonia, SAHER (Europe) is the Project Coordinator and its role is to manage the overall project delivery.
- The Bruno Kessler Foundation (FBK) in Italy is the project’s technical coordinator, complemented by the technical expertise of the Centre for Research and Technology (CERTH) in Greece.
- The end-user focus of the consortium is provided by the Johanniter Research and Innovation Centre (JOAFG) in Austria, the Development Agency of Lemesos (ANALEM) in Cyprus, and the Municipality of Trento (MT) in Italy. These partners provide a diverse range of local, civil, public and LEA authorities. They will facilitate the pilot-testing of PRECRISIS solution.
- The University of Applied Sciences for Public Service in Bavaria (HfoeD) in Germany will deliver operational and executive training to police officers and emergency services, ensuring unique access to first responders at all levels, alongside training programme curriculum development and evaluation expertise.
- The European Institute (EI) in Bulgaria is leading the promotion efforts and raising awareness about the project, while the Centre for Social Innovation (CSI) in Cyprus brings expertise within the social innovation domain.
Launched in July 2023, PRECRISIS is a two-year project, funded by the European Union’s Internal Security Fund (ISF), that works for strengthening the protection of public spaces by preventing terrorist attacks and violent crimes and mitigating their impacts.
