EUCISE 2020 LOGO CONTEST
EUCISE2020 is a Security Research project of the European Seventh Framework Program, aiming at achieving the pre-operational Information Sharing between the maritime authorities of the European States. EUCISE2020 is an important milestone in the roadmap for the implementation of the European CISE - Common Information Sharing Environment, one key component of the European Integrated Maritime Policy and of the European Maritime Security Strategy. Surveillance activities are carried out by States but most of the activities and threats that they address are transnational in nature. Within most States surveillance activities fall under the responsibility of several different enforcement agencies. The aim of integrated maritime surveillance is to generate a situational awareness of activities at sea, impacting on: - maritime safety and security, - border control, - maritime pollution and marine environment, - fisheries control, - general law enforcement, - defence, - trade and economy
