Om Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed

Med støtte fra Horizon 2020 kan du gennemføre internationale forskningsprojekter, der understøtter EU’s politikker på sikkerhedsområdet. Virksomheder kan ved succesfuld anvendelse af programmet få:

  • € 1-5 mio. til teknologi- og produktudvikling
  • IPR – Patentrettigheder
  • Netværk til udviklingspartnere
  • Adgang til nye markeder
  • Teknologi- og videnstilførsel

Formålet med Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed er at øge den europæiske konkurrenceevne i forhold til resten af verden og skabe nye arbejdspladser.

Muligheder ved Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed

Mulighederne er til stede for såvel små som store virksomheder uanset branche og teknologiniveau. Det er således også interessant for virksomheder med traditionel produktion og ikke kun for højteknologiske virksomheder.
Det afgørende er, at virksomheden enten står over for en teknologisk udfordring, eller har en projektide til at løse en teknologisk/samfundsmæssig problemstilling. Gennem Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed kan virksomhederne få medfinansiering fra EU til projektets forskning og udvikling.

Opslag under Horizon 2020 sikkerhed, vil blive udbudt til projekter indenfor følgende kategorier (se nederst på siden for aktuelle opslag):

  • Krisehåndtering: Ekstremt vejr, kemisk - biologisk - radiologisk – nuklear (CBRN) forurening, klimatilpasning, naturkatastrofer, beskyttelse af betydningsfuld infrastruktur, kommunikationsteknologi, etc.
  • Kriminalitet og terrorisme: Retsmedicinsk infrastruktur og værktøj, internetovervågning, identitetsovervågning, sikkerhed i byområder, etc.
  • Grænsesikkerhed: Kyst- og landgrænsesikkerhed, radarsystemer, biometrisk data, skanning, fragtinspektion, ekstern sikkerhed etc.
  • Digital sikkerhed: Beskyttelse af personlig data, adgangskontrol, IKT og beskyttelse af betydningsfuld infrastruktur, sikker informationsdeling etc.

Krav til Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed

Der er 3 overordnede krav til et projekt for at kunne ansøge om støtte fra Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed:

  • Innovationshøjde - produktet/teknologien skal være ny(t) og løse en Europæisk problemstilling inden for Sikkerhedsområdet.
  • Stort markedspotentiale eller stor samfundsøkonomisk impact – min. €100mio over 5 år.
  • Projektet kræver 3 partnere fra 3 forskellige lande.

Kommende deadlines

Nedenfor er vist de kommende ansøgningsfrister under Horizon 2020 Sikkerhed. Er der tid nok til at nå næste ansøgningsfrist? Vi anbefaler at beregne 1-2 måneder til udarbejdelse af ansøgningen.


Proposals should address the deployment of detection systems in large and medium cities, in existing networks, or a combination of such networks, for instance for the detection of explosive precursors and illegal chemicals (drugs). Proposals shall address sewage networks and quality of air monitoring networks, and may address other networks. The experiment should last a significant period of time (at least two years).

Proposals should also provide for a mobile platform equipped to ascertain the composition and location of suspicious measurements, once data have been provided by the networked detection systems.

Proposals should provide for the prototype of a system controlling the detection systems and capable of fusing data provided by a variety of such networks, and of interfacing with other networks, pay particular attention to ethical issues raised when using such systems, and address the sustainability of such systems.


Proposals should take account of the four-tier access control model developed in the EU: measures undertaken in, or jointly with third countries or service providers (e.g. those managing Advance Passenger Information or Passenger Name Record systems); cooperation with neighbouring countries; border control and counter-smuggling measures; control measures within the area of free movement in order to prevent illegal immigration and cross- border crime inside the Schengen area.

Innovative, international alert systems can be developed further to more co-operative law enforcement and investigative efforts. Building upon lessons learned and field experience is essential.

The combination of a variety of arrays of sensors, new operational methods, and improved data management techniques can support appropriate law enforcement responses and enable better, transnational, interagency access to reliable and secure situational intelligence and information, on a real-time and cost-effective basis. 


Systems should be developed that combine or improve surveillance technologies and techniques and arrays of sensors of different sorts capable to provide higher quality detection capabilities and imaging via the integration of different techniques, to achieve wide- and small-area through foliage detection, despite the canopy density, in a real operational context. They could build on airborne, satellite-based, and/or on ground based platforms.

Solutions should be tested and validated in terms of capabilities to control effectively the land border covered by a vegetation layer, in all weather conditions. 


Strategies and tools are needed for the timely submission to customs authorities of relevant high-quality and comprehensive data on goods moving and crossing borders, whilst taking into consideration the national and EU legal, procedural and IT systems where they exist. Realistic methodologies and organisations need to develop, that facilitate collaboration among the relevant authorities (not only customs but also law enforcement, transport, security and border control agencies). Data governance policies and mechanisms for data sharing need to be agreed internationally.

Common repositories that take advantage of existing instruments such as the Advance Cargo Information System (advance electronic notification of cargo coming into EU before it leaves the third country) which are under-utilised and under-exploited for risk management purpose, can support the intelligent use and management of complex and large amount of data, exploiting unstructured data, supporting operational and situational awareness of customs authorities, adding intelligence (trends analysis, correlation analysis, etc.) by means of state- of-the-art technologies including in the fields of Big Data, Data Analytics.


The assessment of the acceptability of such (combinations of) technologies and systems by citizens (who need to remain in control of personal data) and practitioners is needed, that takes account of human behaviour, gender, legal frameworks, societal issues, and possible risk of discrimination.

Methods developed to perform such assessments need also to generate information useful for decision makers to take informed decisions about future technology deployments, and for industry to design products that preserve privacy. 


Two different foci are found:

a. Research and Innovation Actions –Situational Awareness

The focus of the proposals should be on the development of novel approaches for providing organisations the appropriate situational awareness in relation to cyber security threats allowing them to detect and quickly and effectively respond to sophisticated cyber-attacks.

a. Innovation Actions – Simulation Environments, Training

Proposals should develop innovative simulation environments and training materials in order to adequately prepare those tasked with defending high-risk organisations to counter advanced cyber-attacks. 


Proposals may cover one of the strands identified below

  • Privacy-enhancing Technologies (PET)
  • General Data Protection Regulation in practice
  • Secure digital identities

New knowledge and targeted technologies for fighting both old and new forms of crime and terrorist behaviours supported by advanced technologies;
Test and demonstration of newly developed technology by Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) involved in proposals;
Innovative curricula, training and (joint) exercises to be used to facilitate the EU-wide take-up of these new technologies, in particular in the fields of:

Sub-topic: 1.cyber-crime: virtual/crypto currencies des-anonymisation/tracing/impairing where they support underground markets in the darknet.

Sub-topic: 2.detection and neutralization of rogue/suspicious light drone/UAV flying over restricted areas, and involving as beneficiaries, where appropriate, the operators of infrastructure

Sub-topic: 3.video analysis in the context of legal investigation Sub-topic: Others.

Only the sub-topics not covered in 2016 will remain eligible in 2017. A list of topics that remain eligible in 2017 will be published in due time in the section "Topic Conditions & Documents" for this topic on the Participant Portal.
