Overview:ARCSAR - Arctic and North Atlantic Security and Emergency Preparedness Network. The project will establish international best practice and propose innovation platforms for the professional security and emergency response institutions in the Arctic and the North-Atlantic. The focus is on increased interaction in targeted networks between the professional institutions, academia and the innovators in the preparedness service and equipment industry. ARCSAR will monitor research and innovation projects and recommend the uptake and the industrialization of results, express common requirements as regards innovations that could fill in capability and other gaps and improve theirperformance in the future, and indicate priorities as regards common capabilities, or interfaces among capabilities, requiring more standardization.
