Security research

Security research is a distinctive agenda on a border between scientists and security policy. The current definition formulated by the European Security Research Advisory Board places security research at the intersection of the environmental, economic and social context of sustainable development.

Security research means research, development and innovation activities aimed at identifying, preventing and preparing and protecting against illegal acts or unanimous intentional harm to the (European) community, human beings, organizations or structures, tangible and intangible assets and infrastructure, including operational continuity after such action and mitigation of its consequences (also applicable in case of natural disasters and industrial accidents).

In conditions of the Czech Republic, security research is understood mainly as scientific research and experimentation focused to achieve additional knowledge, technical and technological level that enables the Czech Republic to acquire, maintain and develop specific capabilities to ensure security of the state and its inhabitants. It realizes a causal relationship between successful research and material and technical and technological prosperity.

Security research has an interdisciplinary character of technical, exact, natural, medical and social sciences with relations to the long-standing needs of security and protection of the state; includes an innovative environment enabling efficient, effective and fast acquisition, transfer and practical use of knowledge and modern materials and intangible technologies.

The Institute of Population Protection is a specialized security research capacity of the Czech Republic established by the Ministry of Interior - the General Directorate of the Fire Rescue Service of the Czech Republic. It ensures the implementation, organization and coordination of research, development and innovative support for protection of the population.
