The MEDEA project aspires to establish a cross-discipline network of highly motivated security practitioners across the M&BS embarking on a "co-creation innovation approach" to define a common strategy – MSRIA – to tackle emerging security threats aligning the needs and requirements of practitioners, the societal perception of insecurity and finally linked to the overarching national and EU policies and available funds in order to enhance resilience and security of the societies.

 

MEDEA specific project objectives:

1. Improve collaboration among institutions and actors from different disciplines using research and innovation as a catalyst for

a) enhancing capabilities of practitioners through the use of technological innovations in their operations and

b) enable the coordinated use of interconnected information systems;

 

2. Define Mediterranean and Black Sea regional security priorities, amalgamated in an annually updated Mediterranean Security Research and Innovation Agenda, using a scenario based visioning method for considering alternative future threats and high impact scenarios, comparing them, analyzing how they might occur at the mid to the long-term and how effective and efficient responses may by devised;


3. Build a scenario driven technology roadmap that

a) Identifies common needs of relevant actors across the region and
b) explores the use of innovative tools such as PCP, PPI, etc. to take advantage of economies of scale and reduce time to market, and

c) capitalize on previous research and innovation activities (national, FP7, H2020, ISF, etc.), policy documents, relevant reports.
