"The InnoSec project will make a strong contribution to developing and helping deploy effective and efficient innovation management systems for Security organisations in Europe.
InnoSec will produce a unique modular model, together with a roadmap, for implementing and improving innovation management in public and private security end-users create new methodologies and built upon best practices in the sector and other sectors, verified by intra- and extra-project team end-users.
The model is unique because there is no similar model devoted to security organisations. It will comprise the four phases of innovation: monitoring, evaluation, adaptation and feedback.
It has been chosen to be modular to facilitate adoption and internal capability to undergo changes.
Customary tools like technology watch, road mapping, and forecast, will be adapted to the security sector context.
The roadmap will propose building blocks that will combine innovation modules and complementary pieces dealing with human-centred and motivational aspects, together with considerations of the organisation’ culture, and will include training materials.
Every phase of the research, including the final results, is consistently contrasted with the opinions of distinguished experts and end-users coming from different areas of the Security services, maintaining public-private, regional sensibilities, operational-research, and gender balances.
The consortium is composed of a combination of RTOs, academic researchers and end-users from across Europe. End-users cover three different areas of the security sector, including public, private and NGOs, regionally diverse and operating nationally and internationally.
The two-year effort of InnoSec is planned to be given continuity through an observatory of security innovation, associated to the activities of the Eurotech Security Research Group and open to other stakeholders in the Security research field."
