The purpose of the project is to contribute to the six-monthly report on the application of Directive 2104/41/EU on the European Order of Criminal Investigation, in order to detect the state of harmonization and its interrelation with other judicial instruments in the various European countries.

The expected results are:

  • an increased capacity of national authorities to address issues related to judicial cooperation in criminal matters;
  • to align the EU relevant case-law of the CJEU/ECtHR;
  • prosecutors and judges have further specialised knowledge and experience in respective fields;
  • a closer cooperation between LEAs, Prison Police and Judiciary;
  • an increased awareness of policy makers and technocrats related to judicial cooperation in criminal matters.

This project is co-funded by the Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers of the European Commission, under the Grant Agreement no. 800816.
