EU ISFP PRoTECT project
Protection of public spaces, that are soft targets, from terrorism.
Explain what is PRoTECT
How do we look at terrorism, what is the threat. --> link to page on terrorism, types and actors
When is something a soft target --> short introduction, create new page on soft targets and link to urban objects that are soft targets
Explain what public spaces are (PSOI), link to urban objects
Local law enforcement, specifically municiplalities. Stakeholders involved are... --> use information from EFUS in D2.1
Steps that can help protect public spaces, starting with vulnerabiltiy identification and looking for solutions.
Step 1. Vulnerability identification
Information on VAT, why it is important to identify vulnerabilities, what you can do with it, that there are multiple methods (for instance VAT from PRoTECT), use scenario's.
Take into account the current measures.
--> link to the following (new) pages: "Vulnerability assessments", "vulnerabilities", "Evaluation methods"
Step 2. Define objectives and requirements
With knowledge of vulnerabilities, it is important to choose what to focus on. Define objectives and requirements for the chosen vulnerabilities and needs.
Step 3. Gather solutions
can be done by research (SOTA), insight in developments of technologies or by asking the market (RFI), use scenario's.
What is an RFI, how did PRoTECT do it, what can you learn.

Step 4. Evaluation of solutions
How to evaulate solutions (MCA, before and after gathering solutions, set up evaluation criteria, particaluralry for a vulnerability and public space). Also other ways of evaluating.

Step 5. Implimentation
This step was not done by PRoTECT, but in general one could choose potential useful solutions and implement it. Next steps.
