What is SecurIT?
SecurIT is a large-scale European project that aims to create a new global competitive security industrial value chain by supporting collaborative improved integration of innovative security systems, with a cross-sectoral and European approach. It will support the time-to-market optimisation and the integration of privacy and security by design at all steps of maturity through a cross-border collaboration between SMEs and end-users. HSD is one of the leading clusters that will guide the project and support selected SMEs through the development of their solutions.
The project will go on for 36 months and aims to establish new industrial value chains which will have longer-term benefits. This initiative provides a great opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular. It allows for networking at a European level for all parties involved, leading to new connections and partnerships in the security sector. Most importantly, the project gives SMEs the opportunity to receive European funding for their projects. Along with this funding comes visibility and brand awareness.
*The definition of an SME for this project is the one that is used by the EU and includes companies with a staff headcount <250 and turnover of <50 million EUR.
