CRISP works in collaboration with the HECTOS project. HECTOS is funded under the EC FP7 security research programme and brings together 9 leading organizations from across Europe to study how existing evaluation and certification schemes used in other areas could be used, adapted or developed for products used for physical security of people, property and infrastructure. As well as mechanisms to independently evaluate functional performance of security products on a scientifically valid and statistically reliable basis, the project will consider compliance verification of interoperability, regulatory, ethical, privacy and other requirements.


Other projects, networks and initiatives in security certification, surveillance, and security research:

ARCHIMEDES (Support to security end users) is a 3-year project funded by European Commission that is built on the recognition that Europe’s security R&T (Research & Technology) potential is currently under-exploited, amongst others, due to a weak participation of end-users & operators in a European end-to-end approach to security research. This situation hinders the efficiency and competitiveness of new European security solutions and services, and misses out on important opportunities to enhance the security of European citizens, society and economy.

ASSERT(Assessing Security Research: tools and methodologies to measure societal impact) is a one year European Commission funded project that started in May 2013. ASSERT focuses on identifying best practices and guidelines in field of societal impacts of science and technology in the security domain and beyond. The project develops tools and strategies for the sustainable implementation of societal impacts in future EU research activities in the field of security.

CIRRUS (Certification, Internationalisation and Standardisation in Cloud Security) aims to bring together representatives and stakeholders with interests in security and privacy issues in cloud computing. Project activities target joint standardization, certification schemes, link research projects with EU policy and strategy, internationalization, as well as industry best practices and public private cooperation initiatives.

COBACORE () is an FP7 funded research project about utilising the community to aid recovery after large-scale disasters.  COBACORE focuses on key, cross-cutting research themes such as the humanitarian application of innovative technologies, community engagement and collaborative disaster management actions and activities.

ERNCIP (European Reference Network for Critical Infrastructure Protection) is established under the umbrella of the European Programme for Critical Infrastructure Protection. Its mission is to foster the emergence of innovative, qualified, efficient and competitive security solutions, through the networking of European experimental capabilities.

ETTIS (European Security Trends and Threats in Society) is a 3-year project funded by the European Commission that is focused on identifying and assessing opportunities for enhancing societal security, improving situation awareness and informing investment options. ETTIS aims to construct a comprehensive framework which can be used in the formulation of future decisions and security policies.

European CBRNE Center is a centre for advanced Studies of Societal Security and Vulnerability, in particular major incidents with chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive substances. The CBRNE research consortium consists of Umeå University (UmU), The Swedish Defence Research Agency (FOI), The City of Umeå, Västerbotten County Council (VLL),The Swedish Armed Forces National CBRN Defence Center (SkyddC) and The Swedish Fortification Agency (FortV).

IRISS (Increasing Resilience in Surveillance Societies) is a three-year European Commission funded project that began in February 2012. The project analyses the spread of surveillance systems and technologies in public and private sectors from the perspective of their impact on the fabric of a democratic society. IRISS focuses on the observable effects and everyday understanding of surveillance in contemporary Europe, analysing differences within and between individual societies and matching the observable effects against the situation in other parts of the world. This empirical research will inform an analysis designed to explore options for increasing social, economic and institutional resilience.

RESISTAND is a two -year Coordination and Support Action (CSA) that aims to identify new ways to improve the crisis management and disaster resilience capabilities of the European Union and individual Member States through standardisation. The project started in May 2016 and will continue until April 2018. ResiStand will identify and analyse the drivers, constraints and expectations of three main stakeholder communities: standardisation organisations through the Standards Advisory Group, the End-User Community and the Supplier Community, consisting of researchers, industry and SMEs. ResiStand’s partners will work with these communities to identify standardisation gaps and to create a prioritised roadmap for new initiatives. The roadmap will be complemented by a critical evaluation of standards as a tool to improve disaster resilience. Additionally, ResiStand will implement a pre-standardisation process that supports the development of standards and bridges the gap between research and standardisation in the area of crisis management and disaster resilience. To test the feasibility of this process and encourage the continued use of the “ResiStand Process”, ResiStand will propose a new work item to a Technical Committee.

SURPRISE (Surveillance, Privacy and Security) is a 3 year project, funded by the European Commission, that re-examines the ‘trade-off’ between security and privacy. Where security measures and technologies involve the collection of information about citizens, questions arise as to whether and to what extent their privacy has been infringed. This infringement of individual privacy is sometimes seen as an acceptable cost of enhanced security. The aim of SURPRISE is to identify factors which contribute to the shaping of security technologies as effective, non-privacy-infringing and socially legitimate security devices.

SURVEILLE (Surveillance: Ethical Issues, Legal Limitations, and Efficiency) is a collaborative research project funded by the European Commission that analyses the ethical issues, legal limitations and efficiency of the use of surveillance technologies for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of serious crime.
