Integrated 3D crime scene investigations based on cost-efficient 3D scanning
Detecting and ANalysing TErrorist-related online contents and financing activities
DANTE is delivering effective, efficient and automated data mining, analytics solutions and an integrated system to detect, retrieve, and analyse huge amounts of heterogeneous and complex multimedia and multi-language (in five languages) terrorist-related contents from both the Surface and the Deep Web, including the Dark Nets. The ultimate goal is to discover (by “connecting the dots”), analyse and monitor potential terrorist-related activities and people, with focus on online fund raising activities, but also considering propaganda, training and disinformation.

Law Enforcement Agency's dialogue
I-LEAD focuses on working with groups of operational Law Enforcement Agencies’ (LEA) practitioners in defining their user needs and innovative solutions. This is carried out using a structured methodology with the assistance of research and industrial partners, supplemented by a broad range of committed stakeholders. It identifies priorities in five practitioner themes as well as topics which would benefit from (more) standardisation and formulate recommendations how to incorporate these in procedures. Other forms of collaboration such as PCP/PPI or Fast Track for Innovation will be examined in an effort to improve matching and uptake of novel solutions and products.
The emerging role of new social media in enhancing public security
Network of Excellence for Research in Violent Online Political Extremism
VOX-Pol is a robust partnering, research, training, and dissemination network that has as its core function comprehensive research, analysis, debate, and critique of issues surrounding violent online political extremism. This includes the online activity of violent jihadists, violent separatists, the extreme right, and others using the Internet, particularly social media, for forwarding their violent politics. Contributors to the network include academic researchers, policymakers, law enforcement, internet companies, and civil society actors.

Analysis System for Gathered Raw Data
ASGARD aims to contribute to LEA (Law Enforcement Agencies) Technological Autonomy, by building a sustainable, long-lasting community for LEAs and the Research & Development industry. This community will develop, maintain and evolve a best-of-class tool set for the extraction, fusion, exchange and analysis of Big Data, including cyber-offense data for forensic investigation. ASGARD will help LEAs to significantly increase their analytical capabilities. Forensics being a focus of ASGARD, both intelligence and foresight dimensions are addressed by the project.

Sewage Monitoring System for Tracking Synthetic Drug Laboratories
The aim of microMOLE is to develop and test a prototype of a sensor system for legal recording, retrieving and monitoring operations of Amphetamine Type Stimulants (ATS) and ATS precursor laboratories in cities. The system will be installed within the sewage system and will track waste associated to ATS production. Criminal investigators and forensic specialists will use the system in case of strong suspicions that in a well confined area ATS is being produced, for collecting material for forensic analysis and potential use in court, and for aiding in the planning of LEA raid operations.

Understand The Dimensions Of Organised Crime And Terrorist Networks For Developing Effective And Efficient Security Solutions For First-Line-Practitioners And Professionals
Organized Crime and Terrorist Networks (OC/TN) are a major challenge for the European Union. However, we need more knowledge in order to develop better strategies and instruments against these phenomena. TAKEDOWN aims at creating a better understanding of organized crime and terrorist networks. The consortium will develop digital and non-digital toolkits and solutions for more efficient and effective prevention, intervention and response strategies.
Retrieval & Analysis of Hetrogeneous Online Content for Terrorist Activity Recognition
Bringing together LEAs (Law Enforcement Agencies), legal experts, industry and research institutions the main objective of TENSOR is to provide LEAs with an intelligence platform to identify terrorism related content online. TENSOR will integrate automated and semi-automated tools for: 1) searching, crawling, monitoring & gathering online terrorist-generated content from the Surface and the Dark Web; 2) information extraction from multimedia and multilingual content; 3) content categorisation, filtering and analysis; 4) real-time relevant content summarisation and visualisation; 5) creation of automated audit trails; 6) privacy-by-design and data protection.

Visual Analytics for Sense-making in Criminal Intelligence Anlaysis
VALCRI is a next-generation criminal intelligence analysis system for European LEAs. Working with three European police forces, the project developed at Technological Readiness Level -5, an integrated system of advanced data processing, analytic, and sense-making applications spanning strategic intelligence analysis to individual case management. Evaluated by 219 users across 50 agencies in 16 countries, it is undergoing trials with actual data at two major police forces. Various VALCRI technologies and non-software outcomes are being commercialised.

ICDR - CounterCraft
Intelligence Campaigns in the Digital Realm
The general objective of the CounterCraft project is to accelerate the introduction of the first EU deception tool capable of detecting advanced targeted cyber-attacks, obstructing the actions of attackers and obtaining the maximum amount of information from them by successfully designing, deploying, monitoring and managing Counterintelligence Campaigns. The deception platform works despite the technical complexity of the adversaries’ intrusion and brings a welcome relief from the constant technical race between the attacker and defender.
Automated Serious Game Scenario Generator for Mixed Reality Training
AUGGMED has developed a prototype of a serious game platform for single- and team-based training of law enforcement and first responders from different organisations responding to terrorist and organised crime threats. The platform allows training in non-linear scenarios tailored to suit the needs of individual trainees with learning outcomes that will improve the acquisition of emotional management, analytical thinking, problem solving and decision making skills. The game scenarios include advanced simulations of agents and citizens within realistic environments.

SURveillance Video Archives iNvestigation assisTant
The SURVANT project is devised to support the job of law enforcement and LEAs to collect video footage from heterogeneous sources installed for surveillance purposes and extracts relevant information. The system is able to support the investigators to discover suspicious criminal events in a simple and efficient way offering two intuitive and self explanatory search types: by image and by sentence; both of them are integrated with a geographical analyzer that suggests object trajectories over space and time. SURVANT reduces both human resources and time required to perform the investigations.

Innovation by Law Enforcement Agencies networking
ILEAnet is a network and community set up by LEA (Law Enforcement Agency) practitioners for LEA practitioners, aiming to address major current and emerging problems they face. It allows for better communication and exchanges both between the practitioner organisations and between individuals. When relevant, other carefully selected academic profiles are invited to join the network based on their expertise, ultimately creating a bridge between the LEAs, academics, scientists, industry and policy makers. ILEAnet organised successfully its first Public Workshop on 11-13 June 2018 gathering 60 actively involved participants.

INSIKT Intelligence is a novel social data mining platform to detect & defeat online radicalisation. An early version of the platform was validated by several EU law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and consequently attracted commercial interest. Phase 2 of this project will trial the software with 4 European LEAs that are looking for effective tools to prevent radical messages from spreading and reaching people vulnerable to radicalisation. The solution will cover a wide range of social media channels, in particular new channels including Telegram and Periscope.
