GMES pre-operational security services for supporting external actions (G-NEXT)
Start date: Jan 1, 2013, End date: Jun 30, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

According to the potential application areas identified under SEA (GMES Security working group in Support to External Actions), and the experience gained by the proposal consortium in Security and Emergency precursor projects (LIMES, G-MOSAIC, SAFER) this proposal will identify and exploit a set of Services able to provide reliable support to the EU External Action service and suitable to be integrated in the user working environment in an effective and reliable way.The proposal research and development focus will be on the enhancement of Crisis Management Response Services in rush and non-rush mode and in covering the relevant gaps identified in the perspective of a (pre-)operational approach.Reference Users for the service/products will include the main actors and stakeholders involved in the context of EU Missions and Operations in support to External Actions: European Union – EEAS (European External Action Service), EDA (European Defence Agency), National Institutions such as Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Ministries of Defence, Police Offices, Intelligence Centres, and also international institutions as UN bodies.The proposal aims to: (a) Demonstrate the effective contribution of an integrated geo-spatial service concept to respond to the needs in SEA user-driven scenarios providing the User Community with an evolving set of security service/products. (b) Involve the main User organization in the GMES Security domain in the use of the provided services. (c) Assure the continuity of the work done in previous GMES projects specifically on security and emergency domains. (d) implement synergies with the other GMES projects and initiatives (e.g. EU, ESA, EDA contexts) running in parallel with the project lifecycle. (e) Perform a comprehensive benefits analysis taking into account the main drivers for the set up of an operational framework. (f) Address the potential service evolution in 2014 onwards perspective.
