Socio-Economics meets Security

Objective

"SECONOMICS goal is synthesizing sociological, economic and security science into a usable, concrete, actionable knowledge for policy makers and social planners responsible for citizen's security. The project is driven by industry case studies and will specifically identify security threats in transport (air and urban and super urban metro) and critical infrastructure. The research focus places social science and political science at the heart of the modeling framework. In particular the project seeks to explore the challenges of pan European coordination in security outcomes for transport and critical infrastructure.
The contribution of the project will be in developing and furthering the state of the art in modelling security problems in a technological and socio economic context and then applying state of the art risk assessments and analysis of the social context to develop optimal policies. The outputs are twofold: first assessment of the future and emerging threats in the identified areas with rigorous modeling of the optimal mechanisms for mitigation within the policy domain. Second, and more crucially, a generalized policy ""toolkit"" that will assist decision makers in identifying and reacting coherently (within the appropriate social context) to future and emerging threats that may arrive long after the project has been completed.

The lasting impactof SECONOMICS will be a methodological revolution driven by a common, but diverse set, of modelling tools and utilizing recent advances in modelling technology that seamlessly transverses the social, economic and technological domains."
