LSEC supports existing and new ideas on how to deal with ICT - OT- / cyber security challenges. LSEC develops industrial collaborations; creates programs, supports industry initiatives that unite security stakeholders and participates in research projects funded by the European Commission, Member States, Regions and other stakeholders.




SecurIT is a European project aiming at supporting and co-financing the development of collaborative projects allowing prototyping and experimentation of top-notch technological solutions in the field of Security, with respect of the nowadays ethics, legal, and social challenges.

The project is structured in three major axes:

  • Demand analyses (new use cases identification) on the Security market, with integrators and final users (including industrial players, public authorities, managers of critical infrastructures…)
  • Identification of technological solutions in Europe (solutions and services for digital and physical security)
  • Matchmaking activities will be proposed by the European clusters of the project consortium, including SCS, to facilitate the consortium building for the applications to the 2 Open Calls for Projects that will be launched by SecurIT.

SecurIT will support 63 best-in-class projects developped by 126 SMEs across Europe, through 2 cascade funding open calls, with a financing up to 74 k€ per prototyping projects and 88 k€ per demonstrator projects.


  • First Open Call for projects: From January 25th at 1pm CET, to April 26th 5pm CET, 2022.
