Spends $212.16 million

 

The European Commission will spend $212.16 million to research on counterterrorism technologies.

The money will be spent to develop technologies and knowledge to mitigate threats including terrorism , organised crime and natural disasters.

There are 44 research projects being financed by the grants including automatic surveillance systems for water distribution systems.

Another area being investigated is the development of a European ballistic database, which will analyse and store firearms information and allow sharing of information among European police forces, here.

If the development work proves successful, then the projects will get contracts with the Commission.

More than 400 companies, universities and public bodies are involved, including organizations from European Union member states, the  United States, Norway, Turkey and Israel, the Commission said in a statement.
