(as partner)

- EVIDENCE2E-CODEX is a project which will pilot a new digital exchange model that can be used as part of the European Investigation Order procedures in the EU -

- EXEC complements the work being carried out in the EVIDENCE2E-CODEX project

- ARMOUR aims to address societal polarization caused by the adoption and spread of extremist ideologies by creating an interdisciplinary model of learning helping individual and mainstream communities build resilience to ideologies and behaviours specific to violent extremism -
