Mapping: STRAW

STRAW stands for Security Technology Active Watch. STRAW is a support action under the Security Research theme that aims at providing a European Service of Technology Watch on Security Technologies. The concept of STRAW is to bring together the defence and security research industry by a neutral coordination to ensure the awareness of underpinning technologies that make possible the implementation of civil security applications. There are two ongoing initiatives on technology taxonomy within EU, one from the industry and another from military community. STRAW aims at harmonizing both under the umbrella of an European Technology Watch in order to advise public authorities, EU security research community and public at large on emerging technologies.
