The Centre for Safety and Security has bundled research in the field of Safety and Security, a highly relevant area for Dutch society.

Collaboration between Leiden University, Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam is crucial for dealing with the changing societal needs and concerns in the field of safety and security: how safe are we, how can safety and security be enhanced, and what are we prepared to pay in return in terms of money and privacy?

These societal needs can be translated into a number of overarching, interdisciplinary and state-of-the art research questions pertaining to the perception and the acceptability of risk, economic issues with respect to safety and society decision making, moral aspects surrounding safety and security and innovative solutions in such fields as technology and governance.
