The partners of the European Project PROTON, including the LABSS, gathered for the First Consortium meeting at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem on October 16th and 17th. All partners participated to the sessions in order to present and discuss the preliminary findings of the research. The plenary meeting paved the way to a fruitful collaboration among the Consortium members during the next years of the project.
PROTON project aims at improving existing knowledge on the processes of recruitment to organised crime and terrorist networks through an innovative integration between social and computational sciences.
PROTON’s impact will improve the quality of prevention policies directed towards organised crime and terrorist networks, while also providing significant innovations in the social, technological and computational sciences.
Throughout the course of the project PROTON works closely with different policy makers and end-users in order to ensure that the final results address their specific needs and expectations.
