Special Feature: How tech is taking on terrorism


50% of overall public funding for security research in the EU comes from the Horizon 2020 programme. This month’s special feature highlights the work being done by seven EU-funded projects, approaching the problem from diverse angles such as harnessing innovative technologies to identify threats, streamlining CCTV analysis and blocking the illicit use of crypto currencies. In other features, Life After catches up one year one with the METSY project, and Project of the Month looks at Factory2Fit, a project looking at ways to engage and motivate factory workers.
