|Project Description||Police organisations’ development, growth and competitiveness depend greatly on their capacity for Research, |
Development and Innovation (RDI). An organisation’s ability to carry out or absorb Research and Development
(R&D) is a decisive factor not only to its own competitive structure but to its productivity and economic growth
in the long-term.
RDI should play a prominent role within organisations; in particular the planning, coordination and management
of organisational and technological RDI programmes to increase the efficiency and the effectiveness. Thus RDI
management is a key asset that must be integrated within the existing management structure achieving in that
way a more creative, competitive and dynamic organisation. This applies especially to police organisations and
can contribute also to promoting the innovation culture within these organisations.
The objective of INTEGRATED-SECURITY is to bring together police organisations and intelligence bodies in
EU/AS in order to discuss and agree on a joint-approach to uptake of security research and innovation that will
break-down barriers for investing in new innovations and technologies as well as sharing of information as part
an integrated cross-border pan-European security strategy. Importantly, this will include interacting with
industry, academia, and other providers of innovative solutions with a view to assessing the feasibility and cost-
benefit of their products and services.
