SECNET

Cross-border institutional cooperation for the improvement of port security
Priority Axis 4
Enhancing capacity building and cross-border governance
Specific Objective: 
OS 4.1.
Investment Priority: 
PI 11CTE
Typology: 
Standard
Overall Objective of the Project: 

The SECNET project’s main objective is to improve the institutional competence of the Program Area’s ports and to lay the groundwork for coordinated and permanent port security at the cross-border level thanks to the use of innovative ICT tools. This will be done by jointly developing long-term action plans and strategies, and by increasing coordination and cooperation between ports in order to improve their security and competitiveness.

Project summary: 

The SECNET project aims to improve institutional competence and cross-border governance in port security. The project will have a considerable impact on security (linked to today's geopolitical instability and the risks of terrorist attacks) and on the competitiveness of the three main ports of the Program Area, since additional and uncoordinated security measures often translate into the slower movement of goods, and therefore into decreased attractiveness of the ports, all to the detriment of the territories’ economic development. In fact, with the help of innovative ICT systems, SECNET will increase the ports’ competence in terms of port security by providing common technical and specialised expertise on a cross-border level. The SECNET project’s partners will also test the knowledge obtained by implementing the joint action plan developed through two pilot measures, which will improve the level of port security in terms of both IT network protection (cyber security) and the protection of the port areas and the perimeter from unauthorised third party access. Finally, SECNET will create a permanent institutional cooperation network on port security, with the establishment of a cross-border governance consisting of project partners and other competent subjects, through the signing a Joint Protocol for the implementation of the cross-border port security strategy based on the results of the project itself, thus harmonising the relative policies throughout the Program Area over the medium and long term. All the project activities (the analysis of the best practices, the exchange of experience and training for the purpose of increasing knowledge, the joint action plan, and the strategy for improving port security using ICT tools) will be carried out on a cross-borders level, in order to seek common solutions to common problems.

Main results: 

The main result of the SECNET project will be improved collaboration and institutional competence on the part of the Program Area’s ports with regard to the key issue of port security, thanks to the use of innovative ICT tools, through joint action plans and joint strategies, with the aim of ensuring long-term cooperation. In particular, the SECNET project aims to achieve the following specific results: 1) The improvement of the ports’ competencies in joint port security planning, and the use of ICT tools as a key condition for ensuring long-term change. In particular, through a successful exchange of experiences and a benchmark analysis involving the best practices, the staff of the ports involved (including the three commercial ports not partnering with the project) will undergo a cross-border training session that will provide them with a solid knowledge base for improving their planning skills; 2) The harmonisation of the policies and measures for strengthening port security on a cross-border level. The preparation of a joint action plan for improving port security and testing it using innovative ICT systems will lay the foundations for the standardisation of port security measures, thus consolidating the security and competitiveness of the ports within the Program Area. 3) The institutionalisation of cross-border port security governance. Thanks to the creation of a permanent cross-border institutional platform, the project partners and signatories of the Joint Protocol will commit themselves to a constant exchange of information, ongoing dialogue, and coordination regarding the best tools and measures to be adopted in the field of port security, with effects that will extend well beyond the end of the project.

Objectives and Activities

OBIETTIVI PRINCIPALI DEL PROGETTO

L’obiettivo principale di SECNET è rafforzare la capacità istituzionale dei porti dell’Area di Programma e creare le basi per una governance coordinata e permanente della security portuale a livello transfrontaliero grazie a innovativi strumenti ICT, sviluppando in maniera congiunta piani di azioni e strategie di lungo periodo, aumentando il coordinamento e la cooperazione tra i porti per rafforzarne la sicurezza e la competitività.

 

SITUAZIONE ATTUALE DELL’IMPLEMENTAZIONE PROGETTUALE (30/05/2018)

Il progetto, avviato a ottobre 2017, sta terminando la prima fase di attuazione, con lo studio della situazione dei porti dell’Area di Programma in merito alla sicurezza perimetrale e cyber security e la raccolta delle migliori pratiche a livello europeo e internazionale. In base a questo studio, è stato redatto un piano d’azione transfrontaliero che verrà testato nelle concrete azioni pilota che i porti di Capodistria, Trieste e Venezia attueranno nei prossimi mesi.
