A large number of secondary and higher education faculties offer courses linked to the safety and security industry, thereby firmly rooting it in technological innovation: these include ESIEE, EBI (Ecole Biologique Industrielle), EISTI, Paris 8 and Paris 13 universities, and more.

A sector arranged in networks

The Pays de Roissy S2 R2 (Sécurité-Sûreté-Réseau-Roissy) network

Founded in 2008, through an initiative led by the Pays de Roissy-CDG association, this network aims to bring together all companies that design or provide security and safety solutions in the Paris-Charles de Gaulle area, in order to offer a global approach to the installation of security equipment (CCTV, entrance controls) – especially to the area’s major ordering parties and local authorities.
The Pays de Roissy-CDG has been active since 2003, and is made up of a large number of socioeconomic and political bodies involved in local life in the Paris-Charles de Gaulle area.
