Building European consortia for security research

The centre of excellence for security and technology (fit4sec) was supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research as part of the "Deutsche Antragsteller fit für Europa“ (German Applicants fit for Europe) scheme until the end of 2016. On June 1st, 2017 the joint project BERKoS started. As part of BERKoS, the website will be continued and adapted to the new requirements of the joint project.

In order to establish application-oriented research alliances, BERKoS brings together national expertise and promotes networking with European partners in civil security research. BERKoS will create a knowledge community platform in Germany that supports German players in coping with the challenges of increased user orientation in European security research.
