Relevant Projects

In order to seek and maintain an interaction with other relevant projects which have been funded under relevant Horizon 2020 and FP7 calls, TRIVALENT project is in touch with similar projects that deals with terrorism and radicalization:

  • CICERO :
  • The goal of the CICERO project is to develop and implement a counter-narrative communication campaign aimed at preventing radicalisation leading to violent extremism, accompanied by a methodology for evaluating the campaign’s effectiveness.
    The CICERO consortium will, at first, identify the target audiences that are considered particularly susceptible to extremist propaganda. The most prominent radicalisation narratives circulating across the EU will then be collected and analysed. The campaign will rely on both online and offline communication channels for disseminating a wide range of multimedia contents, produced by the consortium, to the different audiences.
    CICERO will deal with different kinds of radicalisation narratives, ranging from those related to politico-religious extremism (e.g. jihadist), to left-wing, right-wing and single-issue extremism. The aim is to undermine the appeal of the extremist propaganda, while also providing credible and positive alternatives to the related narratives.
    LETSCROWD will overcome challenges preventing the effective implementation of the European Security Model with regards to mass gatherings. This will be achieved by providing the following to security policy practitioners and in particular, Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs):

    • A dynamic risk assessment methodology for the protection of crowds during mass gatherings centred on human factors in order to effectively produce policies and deploy adequate solutions.
    • A policy making toolkit for the long-term and strategic decision making of security policy makers, including a database of empirical data, statistics and an analytical tool for security policies modelling.
    • A set of human centred tools for LEAs, including real time crowd behaviour forecasting, innovative communication procedures, semantic intelligence applied to social networks and the internet, and novel computer vision techniques.

    LETSCROWD impact will be measured under practical demonstrations involving seven LEAs and relevant emergency services units.

  •  MINDb4ACT: Mapping, identifyINg and Developing skills and opportunities in operating environments to co-create innovative, ethical and effective ACTions to tackle radicalization leading to violent extremism.
    MINDb4ACT will contribute to such priorities for the improvement of current counter-violent extremism policies (CVEs) in the countries represented in the consortium (Austria, Belgium Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy Poland, Spain and United Kingdom) and the generation of new ones connecting through collaboration ecosystems (innovative, open, participatory, user-centred environments) to co-design interventions such as research actions, exchanges, strategic-policy exercises, training courses and pilot projects based on social innovation and civic engagement schemes (a community of practice of 1,500 people).
    Policy recommendation and improved communication tools for law enforcement and security agencies preventing violent radicalisation

    The overall aim of the proposed project is to develop a comprehensive approach to prevent and counter violent radicalisation and extremism. The PERICLES (Policy recommendation and im-proved communication tools for law enforcement and security agencies preventing violent radicali-sation) project is especially dedicated to transitional processes of radicalisation. To meet its aims, PERICLES will consider violent left-wing and right-wing as well as religious ideologies. A special focus will be set on the risks connected with digital violent propaganda. The PERICLES project will deliver advanced and validated counter-propaganda techniques that are target-group-specific. Furthermore, the cooperation between relevant authorities who have due regard against violent rad-icalisation or support the process of de-radicalisation will be enhanced through the use of the project outputs. The comprehensive PERICLES prevention strategy will therefore largely address law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and security agencies; but will also find use by prisons and social workers, teachers and even relatives of affected people.
    Partnership against violent radicalization in the cities
    The project “Partnership against violent radicalization in the cities” (PRACTICIES) mobilizes networks of European cities, experts from the fields of humanities, political sciences, information sciences to better understand the human roots of violent radicalization and to characterize these processes starting by their origins and to build concrete tools and prevention practices. To achieve these objectives the project PRACTICIES relies on the cooperation of experience in the field of urban security in cities and expertise of national structures to fight terrorism. Our project aims to evaluate the existing procedures of registration, identification youth in the process of radicalization in an urban space. Describe and explain social course of transition to radical action, to provide concrete tools for action.
