PETRA.NET addressed this vision through three specific sub-objectives:
- To provide a secure web-based interface (www.petranet.eu) through which verified end-users could access emerging research results from the Preparatory Action on the Enhancement of the European Industrial Potential in the Field of Security Research (PASR) programme
- To provide networking opportunities for the public authority user community and the research community. This was achieved through the web site, contact via the help desk, and attendance at workshops
- To analyse, disseminate and exchange information with the public authority user community This was achieved with a wide variety of documents, updates, notices for funding, conferences, workshops and project reports being circulated to members.
