Organized Crime and Terrorist Networks (OC/TN) are a major challenge for the EU. Many different stakeholder groups are involved in creating awareness, preventing, identifying and intervene in case of risk or threat. But in order to develop better strategies and instruments, we still need a deeper understanding of these phenomena.
The project will create new insights on OC and TN by using a multidimensional modelling approach including social, psychological, economic and cultural aspects as well as further dimensions, activities and response approaches. Based on these insights, an Open Information Hub will be developed for practitioners and the public.
A Solutions Platform will aim at increasing the cooperation between law enforcement agencies and the security solution developers.
With this multi-level approach, TAKEDOWN will not only enhance the knowledge an OC and TN, but it will also develop digital and non-digital toolkits or solutions for more efficient and effective prevention, intervention and response strategies.
