The aim of the SEREN coordination action is to link the different NCPs of the Security research programme, to initiate coordination in the network, and to improve the quality of the network and, as a matter of fact, the ability of its members to deliver a high level of service to the community. Security Research presents several specificities as compared to other COOPERATION’s thematic priorities. In consequence, perhaps more than in the other FP7 programmes and thematic priorities, there is a strong necessity to inform and support the European Security Research community to participate to FP7. However, because ESRP is a new programme within FP7, NCPs are also new to the domain and the level of experience is therefore heterogeneous. Therefore, we believe that there is a need to reinforce the network of National Contact Points of the Security Research thematic priority. The SEREN-phase I project shall last over an 18 months period towards the implementation of an established and performing NCP network in security research.
