|Project Description||Supporting R&I, evaluating and improving the efficiency of innovation in law enforcement organizations, should |
become the most important topics and priorities in MS, which - supported by appropriate mechanisms and
measures – would manage to convert R&I into new products and services.
PRACTIS objective is to create a strong network of practitioners within the national law enforcement
organizations of MS, to agree on a common approach regarding monitoring of R&I in security, in order to increase
investment in innovation and new technologies, and also to ensure a continuous exchange of information and
best practices in the field.
An important goal in this endeavor is to enhance inter-organizational interaction and cooperation between
practitioners from national MS law enforcement organizations and industry, academia and other providers of
security solutions (horizontally and vertically), by creating a dedicated platform.
Directorate General Logistic (DGL) has competences related to scientific research, coordination of experimental
development and innovation in the Romanian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MIA) - national authority which
harmonizes R&I within subordinated structures (police, gendarmerie, border police, firefighters and response to
emergencies, migration, people trafficking etc.) - sense in which it develops and implements policies, strategies
and concepts and coordinates the implementation of MIA R&I plans, programs and projects.

analyzing the capacity, potential and needs for R&I, evaluation and prioritization of action guidelines for
developing the expertise, infrastructure, services and technologies for security R&I.
