The overall urban challenge tackled by SURE is based on rapid growth, major urban changes and related urban security challenges and development needs in Tampere. There are various popular and busy event areas in the Tampere city center. The key challenge of SURE is how to efficiently manage large crowd concentration and event-related urban security in Tampere – especially in a complex and evolving urban environments?
