One of the main outputs of the GATHERINGS project will be to develop a Security-Privacy-Cost Matrix. To develop this matrix, we will identify the key components of security, privacy and cost-related aspects of surveillance.


The security-privacy-cost evaluation matrix will allow policy-makers, security professionals, municipal administrations and event organisers to weigh improved security against the effects on privacy, economic cost and social impact.


To pilot-test the security-privacy-cost evaluation matrix, the GATHERINGS project partners will apply this tool through workshops in each of the partner countries (Belgium, Ireland, Austria, Germany, Bulgaria, Greece and Portugal), where key stakeholders in security and surveillance will test its usefulness and usability.
