The ETCETERA project is a contribution to efficient security research planning on a European level. Its first aim is to identify Critical and Emerging Technologies relevant to security in the European context. The results will be condensed into recommendations for a European Security Research Agenda that deals with upcoming technological threats and opportunities.
ETCETERA’s Structure is separated into strands, one for Critical and the other for Emerging Technologies. These strands are separate but interrelated. Each strand is further divided into three Work Packages that will be carried through in a sequential manner. Two Consultation Campaigns will generate input from technical experts, end-users, and public authorities.
Two kinds of objectives are pursued by the ETCETERA project:
- Several qualified lists concerning Critical and Emerging Technologies and balanced research plans to deal with current and future needs will be delivered
- Novel approaches and methods for the evaluation of Critical and Emerging Technologies and for strategic security research planning will be developed and applied
