Technical Area 5 - Information Processing and Management

Research Priorities for Horizon 2020:
  • Rapid indicator recognition
  • European information platform for fighters against organised crime and terrorism
  • Multinational information exchange platform


Effective Information processing and management is a fundamental capability in all missions required for guaranteeing Europe’s security. Aiming at strengthening this capability, TA 5 focuses on technologies required for:

• Defining system and software architectures supporting advanced data processing (High Performance Computing, Grid/Cloud Computing, Software Architectures, Platforms Development, Middleware);

• Processing information acquired from heterogeneous sources (extraction, classification, semantic analysis, correlation, fusion);

• Formally representing knowledge (ontology definition, conversion, fusion, translation);

• Supporting collaboration between European law enforcement and crisis management organisations.
