Final Report - SECURECHAINS (Integration of Security Technology Supply Chains and Identification of weaknesses and untapped potential)

Project ID: 242417
Funded under: FP7-SECURITY


This is the final publishable summary report for the SECURECHAINS project which received funding under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). SECURECHAINS aims to actively involve researchers, small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), government institutions, major companies and big industrial enterprises to look at technologies capable of tackling a number of major topics in the field of security in Europe, such as security of citizens, security of infrastructures and utilities, intelligent surveillance and border security, restoring security and safety in case of crisis.

The project identified and evaluated the potential of all the layers and associated actors involved on the security technology supply chain (STSC) and tried to enable the actors to get access to the identified main stakeholders and integrators. This approach covered both civil security and defence technologies in an integrated approach in order to understand to what extent the two sectors overlap and how the experience from the defence market can be transferred into the security market and vice-versa. Therefore, this project aimed for the definition, adoption, testing and validation of a methodology able to help the European organisations to obtain a higher integration within the STSC.

The report mainly covers a summary description of the project context, s description of the main science and technology (S&T) results, as well as the work performed in the work packages. It also includes the potential impact, the main dissemination activities and closes with the exploitation of results.
