ENCIRCLE project

EU-SENSE project has been collaborating with ENCIRCLE project from the very start. ENCIRCLE project capitalizes on its experience in the EDEN Demonstration Project, other CBRN relevant projects, and in the CBRN market and supply chain, the ENCIRCLE consortium proposes an innovative approach to reach this goal in a short to long term perspective. Once achieved it will allow SMEs and large industries to deliver and invest in the best innovations on the market.

ENCIRCLE has five key objectives aimed at promoting innovation and business development to fill market gaps in the project timeframe:

  1. Create an open and neutral EU CBRN cluster,
  2. Provide a sustainable and flexible vision and roadmap for the development of the European CBRN market and innovations,
  3. Provide integration with platforms (systems, tools, services, products) by proposing standardized interfaces and future EU standards to integrate CBRN technologies and innovations developed from the Part b projects of the H2020-SEC-05-DRS CBRN Cluster call,
  4. Support CBRN safety, security and defence commercial and market services,
  5. Improve and facilitate European CBRN dissemination and exploitation.

The project is conducted by a consortium of specialized industries, trade associations and research organisations with flexible and lean procedures under the advice of the EC Community of Users. It will rely on two large interactive communities: practitioners and customers, and industrial and technological providers: the latter including many SMEs. To optimize the needs and gaps assessment, as well as innovation development, acceptance and success, ENCIRCLE will establish formal links with other consortia such as future Part b projects.

The main expected impact is the enhancement of the EU CBRN industry’s competitiveness. This will allow it to enlarge its market share while increasing the benefits of the EU research and innovation to improve CBRN preparedness, response, resilience and recovery efficiency.
