About the project

CO-SECUR: Co-creating urban security solutions in Europe, is a 3-year Horizon Europe project (2023-26) that aims to improve citizens’ security perception and behaviour in public spaces, especially at large events and crowded areas, by actively engaging them to co-create innovative security solutions. Through developing tools and a Societal Development Plan (SDP), we aim to promote innovative and responsible security solutions. Our objective is to build trust, acceptance, and improve both security perception and behavior.
