Validation

End-users and stakeholders are key to research projects in order to prepare sound and meaningful use cases, and to provide their know-how of daily business. In order to gather their useful input a big group of stakeholders were invited to two public workshops which were organized.

A large spectrum of needs and requirements were identified in the first workshop that took place in Katowice, Poland, on March, 5th, 2015. User related requirements mainly refer to functional properties of the toolset, e.g. concerning quantitative analyses of costs and benefits of security measures, qualitative criteria (like societal, political, legal etc.) to assess the positive and negative impacts of security measures, calculation and presentation of risk reductions etc.

The second workshop was organized in Aschaffenburg, Germany, on November 26th, 2015 to show the methodology and to gather valuable information to identify use cases that could be suitable to test the framework that CIRAS will provide in the last stage of the project.

As a result of these workshops some stakeholders started to cooperate closely with the consortium for the preparation and validation of use cases. Namely the main stakeholders who have cooperated with the consortium are:

  • Metropolitans de Barcelona (TMB)
  • Mossos d'Esquadra (Catalonian Police) in its Metropolitan Transport Security Area

A final conference was organized on June, 8th, 2016 in Katowice where the main outcomes were presented. On top of that a demo of the prototype was done for the audience.
