Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) use their information systems as their basis for supporting their decision makings that affect the safety of European citizens. It has been found out that individual countries have different perceptions and methodologies on how information management should be addressed.

At the same time there are regulatory and “cultural” issues, according to which some countries do not make all the functions offered in the central EU systems available through their national systems.

TENACITy envisions to address these challenges by proposing a 3-pillar approach:

Modern and effective tools for exploitation of travel intelligence data by authorities

  • Interoperable open architecture for data integration
  • Analysis of multiple transactional, historical data
  • Machine learning and AI to extract patterns from raw unstructured data
  • Risk management algorithms to exclude irrelevant data
  • Blockchain and distributed ledger technologies

Training and sensitization of
LEAs’ personnel

  • Training curricula
  • Living lab
  • Hackathons
  • Workshops
  • Study visits

A holistic approach to crime

  • Travel Intelligence Governance Framework
  • Strengthening security authorities
  • Involving citizens and civil actors
  • Identification of the modus operandi of criminal and terrorism organizations

The TENACITy project will be developed in 36 months, starting on September 2022 by a competitive consortium of 17 partners from 10 countries.

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon Europe research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101074048
