Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Improving the protection of public spaces and other soft targets in line with the EU Action Plan to improve the protection of public spaces;
* Improving protection against CBRN attacks in line with the Action Plan to enhance preparedness against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear security risks;

* Capacity building in restricting and controlling the marketing and use of explosives precursors;
* Increase protection against existing and new threats, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)

* Acquisition, maintenance and/or further upgrading of technical equipment, expertise, secure facilities, infrastructures, related buildings and systems, especially ICT systems and their components at the Union level;
* Activities enhancing awareness of Union policies on priorities listed under point 2 among stakeholders and the general public;
* Development of new methods and/or deployment of new technologies with a potential for transferability to other Member States, especially projects aiming at testing and validating the outcome of Union funded security research projects
