MINDb4ACT has the objective to improve the current EU counter-violent extremism policies and to generate new ones. It will focus on four kind of interventions (research actions, exchanges among law enforcement agencies, strategic-policy exercises, training courses and pilot projects). All actions will be developed within such collaborative ecosystems (‘Living Labs’) to facilitate stable collaborations (‘Knowledge partnerships’) that will improve current law enforcement techniques. The interventions will be developed in 5 specific domains: prisons and judiciary systems; immigration hotspots and asylum centres, schools, cities (peri-urban contexts) and the Internet and Media (TV, radio online).
