Comprehensive data-driven Risk and Threat Assessment Methods for the Early and Reliable Identification, Validation and Analysis of migration-related risks
An EU project, funded under the Horizon 2020 programme, grant agreement № 101021866.
The Goal of CRiTERIA
Contemporary border security challenges are highly complex and inter-related, requiring more cross-sectoral, transdisciplinary and cross-country cooperation in all risk management phases both at the EU and Member States levels. CRiTERIA project, whose name stands for Comprehensive data-driven Risk and Threat Assessment Methods for the Early and Reliable Identification, Validation and Analysis of migration-related risks, seeks to strengthen and expand existing risk analysis methods, by introducing a novel, comprehensive but feasible and human-rights sensitive risk and vulnerability analysis framework for border agencies. The project launched in 2021 and runs for three years.
About the Project
In the CRiTERIA project we will seek to strengthen and expand existing risk analysis methods, by introducing novel approaches. Find out more about the CRiTERIA H2020 project, the methodology, as well as the project objectives and goals.
Meet the Project Consortium
CRiTERIA brings together an interdisciplinary consortium of leading researchers, companies and practitioners from border agencies. The project topic of developing a risk analysis and vulnerability assessment model for the detection of migration-related threats in a well-founded, comprehensive way is indeed a multi-disciplinary challenge and accordingly requires expertise in a wide spectrum of scientific areas. The consortium has been assembled to precisely cover this wide spectrum of required competences.
View the Work Plan
The CRiTERIA project is organized into 10 work packages, which are structured into 4 tracks: a Foundational Track, a Methodology Track, a Technology Track and an Impact Track. These Work Packages are spread across the 36 months of the project’s duration.
