"Horizon 2020" is the biggest EU Research and Innovation program ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020).

The program supports the "Europe 2020" strategy that highlights the research and innovation as key drivers for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth, while aiming to effectively address major societal challenges.

The three main basic elements of the program are:

  • Εxcellent Science: World-class scientific research, aiming EU to attract the best scientists,
  • Receipts registration and issue of the corresponding proof,
  • Societal Challenges: Confrontation of major societal challenges such as population aging, depletion of energy resources and managing Climate change.

Research proposal that submitted by Terracom Informatics Ltd. was approved for funding under the «Horizon 2020» program by the European Union.

The proposal concerned the innovative QR-Patrol PRO system which addressed in security companies and allows complete and real-time management of guards in static guarding or patrolling.

The total project budget is 1.927.422,50 € and European grant is 1.349.195,75 € (70%). This funding will allow the company to invest in innovation activities such as demonstration, testing and promotion of the product in the international market.

QR-Patrol PRO is an innovative system that is marketed as the transformation of the already successful QR-Patrol (http://www.qrpatrol.com), and incorporating Internet of Things and Push-to-Talk technologies.

QR-Patrol is a real-time online guard tour system based on NFC and QR-code tags use, and increases the user’s safety, guards, enterprises and organizations. The staff scans tags placed on locations and assets and the Monitoring Center gets informed in real-time about incidents and actions. Any time a QR-code or NFC tag is scanned, the information will be sent to the web application via a cloud server and the staff will have immediate control on buildings and locations all over the world.

The system is currently available in 33 countries worldwide, holding a very large share in the global market while there are 12 partners - representatives in prominent foreign markets (United States, Great Britain, Australia, etc.)

Through European funding of «Horizon 2020», Terracom Informatics Ltd. aims to create the most advanced storage system and monitoring patrols worldwide.

The project has received funding from the European Union's "Horizon 2020" research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 719375
