The innovation cluster is an open cooperation platform for all actors in the security chain. It is the perfect ecosystem for innovation in a public and private security and defense environment.


This particular cluster has a quadruple helix structure operating amongst four different parties (hence quadruple), in which government and security services (1), companies (2), educational and knowledge institutions (3), professional end users and society (4) interact and work together on an active basis to develop innovations that should lead to a safer society. It is a network in which all nodes are interconnected. The cluster is a neutral and objective environment for an active and constructive public private cooperation on the level of innovation  in the safety domain.
