Civil society ready to participate in security research

Representatives from Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and experts participating in security research funded by the European Union met in Berlin 15-16 September to discuss ways to overcome barriers for CSO participation in such research projects. Currently, the agenda for security research tends to focus on the development of products by large industrial companies, without apparent visible contributions to the overall security of European citizens. Most CSOs campaigning for civil security issues lack the expertise and resources to engage with security research. CSOs are not included in most projects and when they are, their role tends to be marginal. The workshop participants discussed existing barriers as well as desired future solutions, ending up with concrete and detailed suggestions for engagement of CSOs in all stages of the EU Security research cycle, from priority and agenda setting, though project execution, to dissemination and impact assessment. The workshop was organised in the SECUREPART project www.securepart.eu
