The PRoTECT project (Public Resilience using Technology to Counter Terrorism) aims to strengthen local authorities’ capabilities in public spaces protection by putting in place an overarching concept where tools, technology, training and field demonstrations will lead to situational awareness and improve direct responses to secure public places before, during and after a terrorist threat.
After two and a half years, the PRoTECT project is coming to an end. During its implementation, despite the challenges imposed by the health crisis, the project has developed several tools that will help local authorities and other local actors to better prevent, respond and react to terrorist threats in public spaces.
This final event has been divided into three sessions spread across three days:
- The first session will be dedicated to an institutional discussion focusing on the cities’ progress in developing tools to prepare for and counter-terrorist threats
- The second session will focus on sharing PRoTECT tools and their applications at the local level by local authorities.
- The third and final session will offer an opportunity to exchange tools and experiences between the different projects funded by the European Commission
