As a journalist, researcher, organisation or movement, are you wondering which companies, public agencies and research institutions benefit from the billion Euros in military and civilian security funding that the European Union has spent since 2007? Have you had trouble finding detailed information on who the beneficiaries are, in which projects they are involved and how much money they receive? Or would you like to know how many projects a particular company has participated in, and how much money they have made in total?
Although publicly available, this information is currently spread across different EU agencies, departments and online tools, some of them being particularly complex to search. Other data must be requested from national entities directly.
Opensecuritydata.eu was created in 2021 by investigative journalists with a grant from the International Press Institute and the European Journalism Centre, in order to aggregate this information under an accessible and user-friendly format, covering all the beneficiaries of EU security funding since 2007.
Now, ENAAT is bringing the expertise and financial support to update opensecuritydata.eu with the EU funding for military research and development since 2017 through the EU Defence Fund.
