Protection System for large gatherings of people in Religious Sites
Religious sites are considered to be especially vulnerable to attacks due to their accessibility and the fact that there are usually limited security measures applied.

It will be achieved by forming a cooperation between faith-based leaders, public services and security experts, the places risk evaluation, raising public awareness (especially key beneficiaries – clergy and worshippers), as well as developing and validating comprehensive protection system.
The system involves tools and templates (i.e. including utilization of EU Vulnerability Assessment Tool), training (including eLearning with VR), educational materials and security precautions covering entire cycle of an emergency (from prevention to recovery), a model of security system for indoor and outdoor religious gatherings with set of recommendations. The model will include upmost effective ways of cooperation between public authorities and services, faith-based leaders, various religious institutions, security experts and practitioners. Efficient communication is a key element in order to build solid platform for exchanging needs, expectations, best practices; sharing knowledge and experiences on usage of technological and non-technological solutions as well as existing and potential innovations in the respected field.
