fit4sec pursues the aim of pooling expertise in the German security sector so as to successfully form German-European research alliances together with academic partners and end users. The intention of this is to improve the baseline situation of German enterprises significantly for participating in European security research projects.
fit4sec will, for this purpose, identify the strengths of the German security sector and, building upon that, establish and develop a dialogue between the industrial actors and the circle of end users and representatives of academic research.
Fraunhofer FOKUS is working within fit4sec on the development of a knowledge management system that is to support the formation of new consortia in the context of Horizon 2020. The identification, structured acquisition and mapping of relevant research topics, projects and partners in the fields of crisis management and critical infrastructures play a central role in this connection.
