Cross-cutting issues

The field of security research interfaces with various policy areas and adjacent areas of research, resulting in a wealth of research topics, which the 2018 - 2023 framework programme is specifically designed to address. They reflect the multifaceted, multidimensional nature of civil security as a task concerning society as a whole.

The cross-cutting issues of “International cooperation” and “Knowledge transfer and expertise development” deal with generic issues related to civil security research. The aim is to ensure a future-proof innovation chain in civil security research in Germany and to strengthen collaboration between research, business and users at the European and the international level.
