Building European consortia for security research

fit4sec is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) as part of the initiative “Deutsche Antragsteller fit für Europa” (German Applicants fit for Europe). From 2013-2016 the project aimed to pool the expertise in the German security sector and to improve the initial position of German enterprises (in particular SMEs) for participating in European security research projects. In 2017, the project team has been extended by three key end-user partners to better support quality end-user orientation in European security research.
