Research and Innovation action (RIA): Human factors, and social, societal, and organisational aspects to solve issues in fighting against crime and terrorism
Deadline: 27 August 2020
The Lisbon Treaty enables the EU to act to develop itself as an area of freedom, security and justice. The EU Security Union is now in the building, and requires an EU-wide approach to security that integrates prevention, investigation and mitigation capabilities in the area of the fight against crime.
The globalisation of communications and finance infrastructure allows crime to develop and take new forms. This Call deals with R&D and innovation towards establishing disaster-resilient societies, fighting against crime and terrorism, and improving border and external security.
Proposed approaches need to rely on existing knowledge and to exclude approaches that have previously failed. The societal dimension of fight against crime and terrorism should be at the core of the proposed activities.
Proposals should be submitted by consortia involving relevant security practitioners and civil society organisations, each under only one of the following sub-topics:
- Sub-topic 1: [2018, 2020] New methods to prevent, investigate and mitigate trafficking of human beings and child sexual exploitation – and on the protection of victims
- Sub-topic 3: Developing evidence-based approaches to evaluate and to further develop initiatives to prevent and counter violent radicalisation
Eligibility and admissibility conditions can be found in the Web Page. Projects must be of Research & innovation actions (RIA) and must participate at least three legal entities. Each of the three must be established in a different EU Member State or Horizon 2020 associated country. All three legal entities must be independent of each other.
Benefits: about EUR 5 million
Deadline: 27 August 2020, 17:00 Brussels time (10:00 Colombian time)
