DESCRIPTION

MINDb4ACT is a project funded by the European Commission and led by the Elcano Royal Institute. It involves 18 partners from 10 European countries, with 33 institutions taking part.

Its goal is to understand the process of radicalisation and recruitment methods in a range of contexts (individual, in the family, in schools, in the community, in prison, via the internet and social media) and dimensions (psychological, socioeconomic and ideological), using technological solutions based on big data and virtual reality for the analysis of risk factors and in order to draw up methodological proposals.

All this is accompanied by the aim of constructing a community that facilitates knowledge transfer, developing joint capabilities based on empirical evidence and drawing up recommendations geared towards facilitating the work of the police forces and the social and political actors involved.
