Starting from October 2016 and lasting until September 2019, PROTON is a project funded under the Horizon 2020 Programme. It aims to understand the social, economic, and psychological factors that lead people into organised crime and terrorist networks. Giulia Andrighetto, Aron Szekely and Nicolas Payette from LABSS are working on this project.
Comprised of more than 20 partners from multiple countries, this ambitious multi-million euro project will draw on quantitative, qualitative, and experimental data to create models that enrich our understanding of these crucial process. The group’s role is to develop simulation and analytic models and run experiments.
