ARC-SAR

Innovation platforms for Arctic and North Atlantic security: The provision of new research and innovation programmes contribute substantially to successful interactions between security and emergency response institutions in the Arctic and the North Atlantic (ANA). In this context, the EU-funded ARCSAR project aims to establish international best practice and propose innovation platforms within safety and security in the focus region.

The project will advise on their integration and promote the industrialisation of results. The project will map innovations that could address capability issues and other gaps in order to improve performance, and designate priorities as regards common capabilities demanding additional standardisation. ARCSAR will study whether more measures are needed to respond to composite challenges, including proper situational awareness, emergency response capability in search and rescue (SAR), environmental protection, and other security threats.

Objective: 

The ARCSAR project aims to establish international best practice and propose innovation platforms for the professional security and emergency response institutions in the Arctic and the North-Atlantic. The focus is on cross-border cooperation and increased interaction between various networks of emergency preparedness and response authorities, industry groups, academia, innovators, high-level forums, voluntary organizations, and local communities.​ The overarching goal is to increase safety in the ANA region and develop competence of the practitioners and professional security and emergency response institutions through workshops, joint exercises, innovative platforms, and stakeholder events.

The ARCSAR project will monitor research and innovation projects, map the prevailing challenges for search and rescue (SAR), environmental protection, and security in the ANA region, express common requirements as regards innovations that could fill in capability and other gaps, recommend uptake of results, and indicate priorities for targeted topics requiring more standardization or policy.
