IT-based Knowledge Platform
The IT-based Knowledge Platform is the implementation of methods, results, and information from the European Union co-funded Security Research project FOCUS - "Foresight Security Scenarios: Mapping Research to a Comprehensive Approach to Exogenous EU Roles" about scenario foresight for the planning of future Security Research in the 2035 time frame, to support emerging and new roles and mission scenarios of the European Union as a comprehensive security provider to its citizens.

Contact information: For questions about the IT-based Knowledge Platform of the FOCUS project, please contact Dr. Robert Woitsch.
FOCUS wiki knowledge space for scenario information, open for subsequent use by other projects and initiatives, including:
  1. Five "Big Themes" providing the basis for FOCUS scenario foresight, and realted knowledge space
  2. Reference scenarios for "Security Research 2035"
  3. Scenarios for security roles of the "EU 2035"
  4. Scenarios for future Security Research to support those roles
  5. European Security (Research) Glossary compiled by FOCUS
Entry/overview page for the FOCUS roadmap proposal for the planning of "Security Research 2035," based on scenario foresight.
This is a light version of the FOCUS roadmap proposal for the planning of "Security Research 2035" for common use.
This is the repository of on-site and online scenario questionnaires, both of which are for anonymous use based in their use on the FOCUS informed consent and data protection procedure
This is the first "Big Theme" structuring FOCUS scenario foresight. Foresight work under this theme centres on alternative future tracks in further developing the comprehensive approach as followed by European institutions, Member States and international strategic actors - including links between the internal and external dimension of security.
This is the second "Big Theme" structuring FOCUS scenario foresight. Foresight work under this theme centres on scenarios for future EU roles in preparing for and responding to natural disasters and environment-related hazards, with an emphasis on comprehensive risk reduction, civil protection and reconstruction.
This is the third "Big Theme" structuring FOCUS scenario foresight. Foresight work under this theme centres on scenarios for future EU roles for preventing, mitigating and responding to exogenous threats to European infrastructures and supply chains that could have a significant impact on EU citizens.
This is the fourth "Big Theme" structuring FOCUS scenario foresight. Foresight work under this theme centres on alternative futures of the EU as a global actor based on the wider Petersberg tasks, building on EU and member states instruments and capability processes.
This is the fifth "Big Theme" structuring FOCUS scenario foresight. Foresight work under this theme centres on scenarios for the evolution of the EU's internal framework and prerequisites for delivering a comprehensive approach, including Lisbon Treaty provisions and relevant strategies (e.g. for engagement with other international actors) as well as ethical acceptability and public acceptance. The theme also covers the emerging system of EU Homeland Security.
