Short description of project
The objective of the EXERTER Network is to bridge the difficulties for security practitioners to capture and utilize research results and to direct the industry’s innovation efforts to address the mostpressing needs in the fight against terrorism and serious crime. Practitioners will via EXERTER get improved operational capability via novel technologies, methods and knowledge to aid them in executing more efficient countermeasures in a changing threat environment. The scope of the project is based on the phases across the timeline of a terrorist plot and the countermeasures falling within the areas of PREVENT, DETECT, MITIGATE and REACT. EXERTER will each year focus on one phase starting with a scenario definition in cooperation with key practitioners from the consortium and from the End User and Expert Advisory Board. Scenarios are defined based on past events to facilitate the identification of capability gaps. With its explosives expertise, EXERTER will provide recommendations on how these gaps can be countered by (i) directing innovators into targeted areas to which research programmes should focus, (ii) proposing standardization priority areas and (iii) advising on exploitation and commercialization opportunities. Ongoing research activities will continuously be reviewed to promote practitioners’ uptake of results and knowledge. EXERTER will assess evolving threats requiring immediate attention of the SoE community - thus widely addressing emerging technologies and trends. Annual workshops will be held, each year focusing specifically on one of the phases across the timeline. On these occasions, explosives practitioners, research institutes and academia as well as industrygather to discuss the current state of play and future roadmaps to answer to urgent capability requirements  
Short description of the task performed by Croatian partner
RGNF will participate in several WPs. RGNFs main task is related to WP3 and consists of collecting and uprising the background knowledge from already finished and on-going national and international projects within the area of security of explosives. RGNF will also contribute to state-of-the-art technology studies in WP5, and the analysis in WP6 in order to draw general conclusions and recommendations. In addition, RGNF will support the project regarding dissemination of the project results (WP8).
