The PRoTECT Request for Information (RfI) addressed available solutions oriented in protecting / combating terrorism and its effects as regards to open public spaces. The aim of the process, based on hypothetical scenarios dictated by the municipalities of Brasov (RO), Eindhoven (NL), Larisa (GR), Malaga (ES) and Vilnius (LT) (members of the PRoTECT project consortium), has been to investigate the benefits of potentially exploiting available solutions towards preventing and mitigating terrorist attacks within public spaces (so called “soft targets”).

The submission procedure remained online for a period of 2 months (1st of April until 1st of June 2020) and in total 35 submissions of solutions have been received. Given that each solution could be applied for multiple municipalities, finally, the submissions for each city were:

  • 21 to the municipality of Larissa
  • 26 to the municipality of Eindhoven
  • 24 to the municipality of Malaga
  • 26 to the municipality of Vilnius
  • 22 to the municipality of Brasov
