Programmes Security  

The European Commission would like to gain a better understanding of successful innovations stemming from the EU-funded security research work programme. To this end, the European Commission has created the Security Innovation Award, intended to recognise an innovator involved in EU-funded security research projects that have achieved significant impact.

Applications are open from now until 31 March at 18h00 UTC.

More details on how to apply via this link.

The award is part of a larger, year-long study commissioned by DG HOME to identify the factors influencing the uptake of EU-Funded security research outcomes. The study results, which will be shared with the EU security R&I community, will ultimately help the Commission and other key stakeholders improve uptake rates and pave the way for innovative technologies from R&I to the market and to security operations.
