Priorities Area

Project applications submitted under the present Call for Proposals must address at least one of the following priorities:

  • Improving the community engagement (possibly including with informal actors) and the multi-agency cooperation on preventing and countering radicalisation leading to violent extremism;
  • Supporting local actors, including non-profit organisations, by enhancing their knowledge and capacity to prevent and counter radicalisation.
