Facing the new research framework proposed in Horizon 2020, Crímina Centre for the Study and Prevention of
Crime is interested in becoming part of initiatives and proposals related to the calls for ‘Secure Societies’,
‘Europe in a changing world – inclusive, innovative and reflective Societies –, or ‘Smart, green and integrated
transport’. Additionally, in order to provide a direct response to political, legal and societal priorities identified in
European Strategy 2020, the excellence of the scientific basis and the productive collaboration between
companies and universities are the keys to the success of the submission of proposals. Due to this, our centre
offers potential partners for Horizon 2020 the following technical actions and legal advice in social, behavioral
and legal analysis inter alia:


• Human factors modeling for technological solutions
• Cyberattacks prevention for SMEs, local public institutions and individuals
• Policy-making toolkits, security strategies and legislative actions to LEAs
• Security perception and insecurity feelings analysis
• Radicalization processes assessment
• (Cyber-) crime mapping and criminal profiling
• ICT applied to crime prevention
• Criminal and procedural legal analysis and reform
• Comparative legal frameworks
• Research methods in Social Sciences and advice on Statistical Methods
• Studies and surveys of crime prevention, public management and resource optimisation
