The Mediterranean & Black Sea Security Practitioners’ Network

Starting date:
June 1st, 2018

Closing date:
November 30th, 2023

European funding:
3 495 843,75 euros. Funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 – COORDINATION AND SUPPORT ACTION (CSA) TOPIC SEC-21-GM-2016-2017 under grant agreement no 787111.

MEDEA will establish and further develop a regional Network of practitioners and other security related actors in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea region. The project groups the practitioners into 4 thematic communities (TCPs – Thematic Communities of Practitioners):

The aim of MEDEA is to engage a critical mass of security practitioners and actors including first aid responders, border guards, national police, civil protection teams, humanitarian workers, defence entities and other interested stakeholders in efficient cooperation with cross-discipline entities from other countries. The expected result would be the effective response to all security threats common to the Mediterranean and Black Sea region.

The requirements from all four communities will be featured as inputs (regional operational needs) in the Mediterranean and Black Sea Security Research and Innovation Agenda (MSRIA).
