INSEC – Increase Innovation and Research within Security Organisations

The INSEC project, which concluded in 2014, helped improve the Innovation and Research processes within the security organisations, so that they can integrate new technologies, enabling them to evaluate novel approaches and services dedicated to the safety of citizens. The project focused on two main areas:

  • The development of a new internal innovation management model. This will allow the security organisations to better manage both the financial impacts and the added value of innovating projects.
  • The development of an external innovation platform in order to promote the networking between European security SMEs and public/private security organisations. This will increase the visibility of SMEs to the security organisations and hence diversify the range of services and technologies to them. Two major European-scale events will be organised to share the good practises in the field of innovation management and dissemination will be though e-learning training modules developed within the project.

Baltic Innovation Agency was responsible for analysis of end user needs, which also included interviews and discussions with security related services providers. In addition BIA also provided connection to Enterprise Europe Network for project partners and end users.
