Safeguarding against terrorism

Industry Database

A new training project has been launched to help deliver improved training tools and techniques in response to terrorism threats aimed at Europe’s critical infrastructure, including ports.

AUGGMED (AUtomated serious Game scenario Generator for MixED reality training) aims to develop a multimodal virtual reality and mixed reality platform that can be used anywhere via a variety of devices.

It offers tools to allow trainers to set learning objectives for single or multiple organisations and provide real time feedback and assess the trainee’s performance.

Under the coordination of BMT Group Ltd, a consortium of 13 project partners from six EU countries will collaborate to produce the programme, including Piraeus Port Authority, which will be conducting a trial of the programme when it is completed.

As part of the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, the project has secured funding of approximately €5.53million and will run for 36 months.
