FOUR EU INNOVATION PROJECTS: HORIZON 2020 IN THE SPOTLIGHT
The Voorkempen Police Zone is currently working on four European projects. The sub-projects fall under the broader title of “Horizon 2020”, a large-scale research and innovation program set up by the European Union in 2014. Horizon 2020 is a collaboration between public authorities and private companies sharing the same ambition: stimulating economic growth and innovation in Europe and making the results available to the emergency services.
• Trivalent Project – a project concerning (de)radicalisation, for which our zone is in charge of the work package dealing with the skills of the Police and other professionals in this field, as required for combating radicalisation.

• Letscrowd - In this project tools are developed for providing support in the management of mass gatherings.
• Prophets – intended to redefine existing methods for investigating, moderating and preventing cybercriminal behaviour. Amongst other things, this project will strive to achieve early identification of security threats with which we might be confronted, possibly on the Internet.
• ANITA – This project will develop a research system that analyses textual and audio-visual content, both online and offline, for combating illicit drug trafficking, counterfeiting of medicines and the arms trade. Through an in-depth, cross-disciplinary data analysis, ANITA intends to provide insights, and to create tools for combating such illegal trade.
