European network of Cybersecurity centres and competence Hub for innovation and Operations
A European Positive Sum Approach towards AI tools in support of Law Enforcement and safeguarding privacy and fundamental rights.
Enhancing cybersecurity and the reporting of cyberattacks in the EU
Duration: 1 December 2021 – 30 November 2024
The project aims to provide policymakers, law enforcement agencies and the private sector with a more comprehensive understanding of cyberattacks and cybercrime in the EU. Insights will be used to develop investigative tools, improve information sharing, and better detection, response and prevention of cybercrime.

Cut The Cord (CTC)
solutionS to enHance Interfaith protEction of pLaces of worship from terrorist Danger
Duration: 3 January 2022 – 2 January 2024
SHIELD is a project funded by the European Union’s Internal Security Fund aimed at protecting places of worship from the risks of violent extremism. Implementing risk factors’ analysis, SHIELD is to enhance security postures at places of worship through improving the coordination, cooperation, and communication between law enforcement agencies, public authorities, faith leadership, and congregations.
Development of an efficient steganalysis framework for uncovering hidden data in digital media
Duration: 1 May 2021 – 30 April 2024
The main objective of UNCOVER is to develop innovations for detecting hidden information (steganalysis) and to increase the technological autonomy of Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) in the field of digital media steganalysis. With its consortium of 22 partners, which includes LEAs, forensic institutes, leading researchers and software developers as well as technology companies, UNCOVER aims to improve current standards of steganalysis solutions regarding the performance, usability, operational needs, privacy protection, and chain-of-custody considerations.
Preventing, Countering, and Investigating Terrorist Attacks through Prognostic, Detection, and Forensic Mechanisms for Explosive Precursors
Duration: 1 October 2021 – 30 September 2024
The EU-funded ODYSSEUS project develops effective and efficient prognostic, detection and forensic tools to improve prevention, countering and investigation of terrorist incidents involving homemade explosives. The knowledge helps in the development of tools for monitoring the chemical supply chain and sensing in (near) real-time explosive precursors. The tools will be field-tested in three operational use cases.
sCience and human factOr for Resilient sociEty
The EU-funded CORE project identifies and implements best practice and knowledge, learning from seven past cases and from countries like Japan which has high levels of seismic and tsunami risk, but where risk awareness is high. Blending this European-specific and global best practice, CORE provides optimised actions and harmonised solutions to rebuild socio-economic structures after a disaster. Through transdisciplinary collaboration involving environmental science and social science communities, it defines common metrics related to the different types of disasters, and how to measure, control and mitigate their impact.
European Identity THeft Observatory System
Project EITHOS (European Identity THeft Observatory System) – funded under Grant Agreement 101073928, Call “Fighting Crime and Terrorism 2021”, Topic “Online identity theft is countered” – will develop a novel Identity Theft Observatory System, empowering European citizens, Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs), and policymakers to further contribute to the prevention, detection, investigation, as well mitigation of OIDT related crime and societal impact.
More specifically, EITHOS will provide a common gateway for identity theft information and intelligence in Europe, built on top of a modern technological back end, based on two pillars: (1) Inform & Educate European citizens through the observatory itself and via innovative awareness campaigns regarding the safety of their personal data and identity, not forgetting a victimology perspective that will focus on socio-psychological impacts; (2) Identify & address the challenges that Police Authorities face against identity theft and develop a robust software toolset to support them and enhance their investigations.
