Welcome to Stair4Security.

Stair4Security is a three-year Horizon 2020 Project (2019-2021) funded by the European Union to develop an expert platform setting a mechanism of coordination of research-related standardisation activities in the security sector.

/ About

Both, public and private stakeholders require adequate solutions in organization, procedures and technological capabilities to be able to respond timely and effectively. Thus, there is a need to develop specific standards to enable the various public and private organizations within Europe, being local, national, European or international to be effectively coordinated ensuring as much as possible a smoothly cooperation before, during and after a disruptive event.

The main objective of STAIR4SECURITY is to create a collaborative platform as single entry point of information on the security sector coming mostly from research activities allowing a better governance of standardization needs in the Disaster Resilience and Chemical Biological Radiological Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNe) sectors. The platform will permit a better overview of current and new projects being at, national, European or International level; ensuring more coordination between all stakeholders and responding more efficiently and timely to the critical needs following an agreed strategic vision and identified priorities.



The STAIR4SECURITY final event took place on 27th and 28th of May 2021. It was hosted by KPMG FA and TFC, and covered ten sessions, offering an overview of the STAIR4SECURITY ecosystem and results.


We are looking forward to hosting the final event for the STAIR4SECURITY project, which is to be held virtually on the 27th & 28th of May, 2021. The focus of the event will be on the STAIR4SECURITY platform and the eLearning tool.

STAIR4SECURITY: Project Update

The platform and eLearning technology validation process is also vital in ensuring that the STAIR4SECURITY Final Event will deliver an overview of comprehensive, relevant tools that can be used by the CBRN/DRR Community.

Stair4Security talks about Engagement Strategy

Over the past months, the Stair4Security team has worked relentlessly on the development of the Stair4Security platform and the supporting elearning tool. The Stair4Security framework is built as a single-entry point governance eco-system to support research, innovation and standardization in the DRR/CBRNe sectors.

Stair4Security’s coverage in European Commission’s CBRN Newsletter

Stair4Security was delighted to be included in the latest edition of the European Commission’s CBRN Newsletter, issued at the beginning of this month. The newsletter provides CBRN-relevant update at EU level, and consists of a description of work carried out to date as a means of keeping informed the research community of first responders’ needs to CBRN incidents.
