Project number: 2021-1-LV01-KA220-HED-000023056

Planned project period 2022-2024

Project is financed by ERASMUS+ programme.

During the past years security issues has become an important aspect to many European countries. World is coping with wide range of challenges as migration, cyber-attacks, and other new difficulties, including virus led crisis.

This leads to fact that there is a need not only for high quality training for young security specialists, but also for the trainings that will allow them to be better prepared for the crisis, as well as possibly to eliminate many dangers before they happen and turn into crisis. There is a great lack of digital teaching and learning materials in the security field, especially if we are talking about security risk management.

This project aims to establish sustainable security specialists’ network, which can cooperate on long term bases. During the project we will develop recommendations for universities which are preparing security specialists in Europe. Also, partnership will develop and maintain comprehensive and up-to-date digital teaching materials and tools, gathered in one web platform which contains the most updated information on security risk management aspects available for all security experts, students, and academics.

Project will create sustainable network of European Universities teaching security specialists. Also, we will create solid bases for the unified and high-quality teaching materials for any EU University tackling security field.
