The IcARUS project (Innovative AppRoaches to Urban Security), is coordinated by Efus, with a consortium of 17 partners.
IcARUS aims to learn from past experiences in urban security policies. The project’s main objective is to rethink and adapt existing tools and methods to help local security actors anticipate and better respond to security challenges in the context of:
The project will reassess past and present urban security policies in order to provide technologically and socially innovative tools adaptable to specific local contexts.
The project will develop custom made solutions to security challenges which will incorporate social and technological innovations. Local and regional authorities will be involved in all stages of the project.
The tools will be designed through a constant process of defining, ideating, prototyping, testing, evaluating and adapting by local authorities. This process will ensure that they are effective and meet the collective needs of citizens.
IcARUS is a 4-year project funded under the European Union H2020 programme.
