Urban Security

In Germany and France, a high proportion of the population lives in cities and metropolitan areas. On the one hand, the wide variety of leisure activities and cultural activities contribute significantly to the quality of life of the urban population. On the other hand, the high infrastructure density and changes in the population structure can lead to new threats to the population, which require new security solutions. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the Agence Nationale de la Recherche (ANR) strive to promote interdisciplinary research projects that strengthen security in urban areas in Germany and France with the Call for Proposals "Future Security in Urban Areas".

Further funded projects from the Call for Proposals "Future Security in Urban Areas” can be found on et
