Cooperation between a varied array of actors is essential in order to achieve the project’s main goals. Thus, the consortium’s composition is particular in the sense that it combines prison administrators, trade unions, VET and research organisations, and representatives of correctional private and public sector members. Only by taking advantage of such a strategic partnership would the consortium reach the project’s objective of mapping out the ideal profile for PO in the 21st century.
The consortium is represented by five EU Member states, through the collaboration of BSAFE LAB of UBI University from Portugal, IPS_Innovative Prison Systems, Sindicato Nacional do Corpo da Garda Prisional from Portugal, Bremen Senate of Justice and Constitution, De Federale Overheidsdienst Justitie/ Le Service Public Fédéral, Sindicatul National al Lucratorilor de Penitenciare, Stichting Foundation ICPA Office in Europe and the European Organization and Correctional Services.

With extensive experience in managing EU funds and promoting innovative training programmes for prison staff (ECOPRIS, R2PRIS and EIGEP projects as e.g.), the BSAFE LAB of the UBI University leads the consortium. BSAFE LAB is a specialised research lab focused in developing research and training in the areas of justice, law enforcement and public safety. The research institution combines its project management experience together with the knowledge of the specific sectors, both the VET (being the university a VET provider) and the corrections research side, pulling expertise from its various faculty members to contribute to the development of the different work packages.
