Participants and consortium

The Project Organisation and the Partner characteristics reflect the spirit of the project and its System oriented mission.

The partnership has been not limited to a minimum. The 16 partners come from 10 European countries: France (3), United Kingdom (3), Italy (2), Germany (2), Sweden, Spain, the Netherlands, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovenia.

All the partners are excellent in their domain and their strong commitment and interest on the project may reduce management risk and contribute for achieving the goals to harmonize different point of view and interests, coming from different requirements and industrial and social cultures.

Strong commitment and interest take advantage from the final targets of enhancing protection against terrorism of European mass transportation system and infrastructures. Issues are ethical, social and political, that can only partially be addressed with technological and organizational responses.

This dimension will thus be constantly present throughout the present project.
