PREVENT – PRocurEments of innoVativE, advaNced systems to support security in public Transport

PREVENT focuses 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.

PREVENT implements a progressive and iterative process to deliver 6 jointly defined Common Security Scenarios that capture threats and vulnerabilities.

It also delivers a vulnerabilities and threats taxonomy directly applicable to the public transport world. For these scenarios, PREVENT undertakes a gap analysis between available solutions, existing standards, on-going research and identified needs, from which it elaborates a multi-dimensional roadmap of innovations and solutions.

The highest priority innovations in the roadmap are selected by practitioners and public buyers to define a Common Challenge as the basis for a sub-sequent Pre-Commercial Procurement, for which the buyers’ group is created, the lead buyer is selected, and tender documents are generated.
This focus is shared, from the start, by 22 organisations from 10 countries, public transport operators, security forces (including Hellenic Police), public buyers, city authorities of which 12 are consortium partners and 10 are members of the PREVENT User Observatory Group (UOG).
