Crímina Centre facing the EU Programme for Research and Innovation (H2020)

Facing the new research framework proposed in Horizon 2020 (H2020), Crímina Centre for the Study and Prevention of Crime is interested in becoming part of initiatives and proposals related to the calls for ‘Fight against crime and Terrorism’ , ‘Cybersecurity, Privacy and Trust’, or another calls related to security and cybersecurity. Additionally, in order to provide a direct response to political, legal and societal priorities identified in European Strategy 2020, the excellence of the scientific basis and the productive collaboration between companies and universities are the keys to the success of the submission of proposals.

For Crímina, as happens with security in physical spaces, the prevention of cyberattacks must be a priority in the digital society that we live in. Due to this, our centre offers potential partners for Horizon 2020 the following plans and technical actions and advice in the social scientific and legal analysis of cybersecurity and fight against crime and terrorism:
