Description :


Projects’ results are expected to contribute to all of the following outcomes:

  • Enhanced ability of security practitioners to identify and prevent emergent challenges in the terrorism-related topic under consideration;
  • Harmonised and modern tools as well as procedures of the terrorism-related problem under consideration, in full compliance with applicable legislation on protection of personal data and protection of fundamental rights;
  • Improved cooperation between European Police Authorities, as well as with international actors, in tackling the problem in question; and
  • Training curricula for Police Authorities are developed for an improved countering of the terrorism-related problem under consideration.


Under the Open Topic, proposals are welcome to address new, upcoming or unforeseen challenges and/or creative or disruptive solutions for increasing security of citizens against terrorism, including in public spaces, that are not covered by the other topics of Horizon Europe Calls Fighting Crime and Terrorism 2021-2022, Fighting Crime and Terrorism 2023 and Fighting Crime and Terrorism 2024.

Adapted to the nature, scope and type of proposed projects, proposals should convincingly explain how they will plan and/or carry out demonstration, testing or validation of developed tools and solutions. Proposals should also delineate the plans to develop possible future uptake and upscaling at national and EU level for possible next steps after the research project.

Research proposals should consider, build on if appropriate and not duplicate previous research, including but not limited to research by other Framework Programmes’ projects.

Proposals funded under this topic are expected to engage with the Europol Innovation Lab during the lifetime of the project, including validating the outcomes, with the aim of facilitating future uptake of innovations for the law enforcement community.

Specific Topic Conditions:

Activities are expected to achieve TRL 5-7 by the end of the project – see General Annex B.
