Project Objectives

The main objective of the PREVENT PCP is to stimulate innovation, enabling the buyers to steer the development of cost-effective solutions directly towards their needs, taking into consideration the findings of PREVENT CSA.

The project vision will be realised through eight Strategic Objectives:
Finalise the common requirements of the solutions to be developed through the PCP process.
S01
Finalise the common requirements of the solutions to be developed through the PCP process.

S04
Setup the PREVENT PCP Academy.

Build an innovation community.

S05
Finalise the common requirements of the solutions to be developed through the PCP process.
Finalise the common requirements of the solutions to be developed through the PCP process.
S06
Align to the framework for an EU-wide Public-Private Partnership on public spaces protection.
Create a standardisation, interoperability and SELP-compliant framework.
S07
Finalise the common requirements of the solutions to be developed through the PCP process.
Finalise the common requirements of the solutions to be developed through the PCP process.
S08

About

Prevent CSA

The  PREVENT CSA project served as a case study for the first stage of the PCP process.

PREVENT CSA focused on pre-empting attacks in public transport by enabling earlier detection of terrorists and potentially dangerous objects, tracking of detected individuals or situations and coordinating the response of security forces.
The actions proposed in the PREVENT CSA initiative focused on conducting a progressive iterative 4-step approach to identify the Common Challenge. This involved:
  1. Identifying the practitioners’ needs and consolidating them into 6 Common Security Scenarios
  2. Analysing the practitioners’ economic capabilities and experience in procurement approaches
  3. Conducting a profound analysis of legal context and the regulatory environment, including the GDPR aspects
  4. Preparing a roadmap of innovations and solutions and selecting the highest priority innovation and technologies
The CSA provided the means for partners to cooperate in the needs analysis and assessment and decide together a Common Challenge which should be the subject matter of the PCP. The identification of unattended objects was chosen as the main challenge in providing safety in public transport. The partners also decided on what the desired technology should be able to do and what would be desirable, but not mandatory characteristics in order to leave room to industry for innovation.

WP1 Project management

This WP is responsible for the operational management and scientific/technical vitality of the PREVENT PCP project. The main objective is the establishment of a sound and flexible project management structure, an efficient management process as well as the provision of an effective risk management strategy, which target commonly the avoidance of deviations of the work plan. 

WP2 Social, Ethical, Legal, Privacy Issues and Data Protection Framework

The purpose of this Work Package is to manage potential legal, data protection and ethical issues of the project. 

WP3 Finalisation of PCP documentation

WP3 aims to implement all preparatory steps before the tender publication. Thanks to the activities carried out in WP3, PREVENT PCP partners will ensure that the tender is implemented smoothly and bring the expected results.

WP4 Procurement, Tendering, and Contract Implementation

The aim of this WP is to publish the PREVENT PCP tender in compliance with PCP guidelines, receive proposals and evaluate them according to the evaluation procedures and criteria defined in WP3 and to select the bidders for Phase 1 of the PCP. Under this WP an administrative and financial supervision of the contracts will be carried in order to guarantee that the PCP objectives will be reached, and contractors fulfil their obligations. 

WP5 Prototype Implementation

The aim of this work package is to manage, monitor the execution of the awarded framework agreement for the first 2 phases. During Phase 1 the R&D providers will start solution design and verify the technical, economic and organizational feasibility of their solution approach to address the PCP challenge. During Phase 2, the winning R&D providers will develop a prototype and will test this in lab conditions. 

WP6 PCP Phase 3 – Validation and Demonstration in Operational Environment

WP6 aims to coordinate the 4 operational pilots by testing the prototypes in real-life situations. After a first design solution phase and a second prototyping phase, public buyers will enter a third phase of the PCP allowing the selected solutions to be validated and demonstrated in an operational environment.

WP7 Building the Culture of Secure and Safe Public Transport

The main objectives of WP7 are to build the culture of secure and safe public transport among practitioners and end-users, raise awareness and disseminate PREVENT PCP project developments, build a User Observatory Group comprising experts from public transport operators and authorities, as well the law enforcement and security forces representatives, create a collective intelligence for MS and EU bodies on security in public transport and to train Public Buyers and End-users.

WP8 Exploitation and Uptake Mechanism

This WP aims at managing the innovation resulting from PREVENT PCP and preparing the exploitation of relevant results. 

WP9 Ethics Requirements

This work package sets out the 'ethics requirements' that the project must comply with.

Expected Results

Besides developing a solution which will allow timely automatic detection of potentially dangerous unattended items, identification and tracking of perpetrators, and advanced crisis management system, PREVENT PCP aims are to:
  • contribute to narrowing down the gap between research and the market for the next generation of security solutions
  • contribute to a single EU security market, by reducing market fragmentation and allowing exploitation of economies of scale
  • facilitate access of new innovative players to the public procurement market
  • contribute to reinforcing the competitiveness of the EU technology and industrial base
