The creation of educational modules developed in (WP3) has to be preceded by, and based on scientific research. This is necessary due to differences in systems and cultures between the three collaborating countries IKIC Public Safety operates in. The systems are shaped by the laws and regulations of their respective countries, which are diverse. It is therefore paramount to research what these differences are and how they affect cross-border cooperation. This constitutes a main aim of the work package Scientific Research (WP2).
