On January 11, the EU funded project (FP7) European Security Trends and Threats in Society (ETTIS), coordinated by J. Peter Burgess and his team, will hold its kick-off meeting at PRIO. ETTIS is a collaborative research project that gathers ten highly distinguished research institutions from Europe and Israel.
The ETTIS project will seek to identify, understand and assess future security threats, security needs and opportunities for societal security. It will develop and test methodological approaches and models for a revolving process of security research priority-setting in order to set research priorities geared towards the needs of user organisations as well as rationales and options for policy intervention. The project will be conducted in close collaboration with stakeholder institutions and organisations such as relevant governmental ministries, EU institutions and security institutions.
