What is the ASSERT Database of Experts in Societal Security?
ASSERT is a European Commission funded research project designed to consolidate and develop contemporary thinking about how to assess and accommodate the social impacts of security research, policy and practice. A key element of the ASSERT project is to create a ‘body of experts’ with expertise in societal security and to facilitate the sharing of knowledge and best practice. Through the ASSERT project this pool of expertise will also have the opportunity to shape the governance and design of European Commission funded research.
