Mayor's Message

Ioannis Moralis
Piraeus Mayor

Piraeus is one of the largest cities in Greece with significant trade and tourist activities, which is why the issue of urban security is one of the priorities of the municipal authority.

The Municipality of Piraeus responds to the challenge with the “BeSecure-FeelSecure” project, utilizing the European funding of the European Regional Development Fund through the UIA (Urban Innovative Actions).

By implementing a holistic governance framework and by strengthening an interlinked network between citizens and city stakeholders, we envision Piraeus as an open workshop of synergies for the development of solutions that will be replicated at local, national and European level.

The Partners

Led by the Municipality of Piraeus, the consortium is comprised by two very important universities: Panteion University via the Laboratory of Urban Criminology and the University of Piraeus Research Center, two leading IT companies : Singular Logic SA and Space Hellas, the Ministry of  Citizen Protection via the E.D.P.D and the international organisation: “European Forum for Urban Security (EFUS)”.
