2. Reducing the gap from research to market
3. Better integration of the societal dimension
Societal impact: “checking” during the R&D phase
Privacy by design and privacy by default during the design phase
Security research & COM(2012)417the 7th Framework Programme (FP7)
- easier access

It concerns the protection of citizens, society and economy as well as Europe's assets, infrastructures and services, its prosperity, political stability and well-being.

In “Security Industrial Policy-Action Plan for an innovative and competitive Security Industry” (COM(2012) 417 final) it is written :
“Pre-commercial procurement (PCP) is a very useful tool in bridging the gap from research to market…..in particular in domains, where there is an institutional market or a market largely driven by legislation, given that public procurement of innovative products and services is vital for improving the quality and efficiency of public services at a time of budget constraints.
Eventually, PCP should enable public users to play a more central role in the innovation cycle through the purchase of novel technologies.
Procurers should act as "agents of change".
The Commission intends to devote a significant part of the Secure Societies budget in Horizon 2020 on this instrument.
PCP: using public-sector demand to drive development of innovative solutions from Europe’s research and private sectors.
It is an additional tool that can be used to bridge the gap between research and market.
PCP should enable public users to play a more central role in the innovation cycle through th purchase of novel technologies.
