The Extreme Energy Events experiment is devoted to study extensive air showers and has already obtained many interesting results in this field. In addition, it has also many offsprings in applied physics. For instance, cosmic-rays measurements at high latitudes were performed, which could give interesting hints about climate change. EEE detectors have also been used for measurements underground, and were proposed to monitor building stability. With minor changes, they can be used for thermal neutron detection in homeland security, humanitarian demining or at the European Spallation Source. Here an overview of the EEE project is presented, then the cited applications are discussed in detail.
