Description of call
"Human factors, and social, societal, and organisational aspects to solve issues in fighting against crime and terrorism"
Security is a key EU factor but globalisation and finance infrastructure increase crime. Proposals rely on existing knowledge, are submitted by consortia and involve security practitioners and civil society organisations under one of the following:
  1. New methods to prevent, investigate and mitigate trafficking of human beings and child sexual exploitation - and on the protection of victims
  2. Understanding the drivers of cyber criminality, and new methods to prevent, investigate and mitigate cybercriminal behaviour.
  3. Developing comprehensive multi-disciplinary and multi-agency approaches to prevent and counter violent radicalisation and terrorism in the EU.
Proposals suggest ways to solve human, social and societal issues in the fight against crime and terrorism.
