Description

MINDb4ACT is a collaborative, international project coordinated by the Spanish Royal Elcano Institute and participated by 19 partners based in 10 Member States (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Spain, Germany, Poland, United Kingdom, and Italy). The project is financed by the European Commission under the Horizon 2020 Programme. MINDb4ACT started in September 2017 and will continue until August 2020.

The project will align its research priorities with some of the most relevant issues already identified by the European Commission:

  1. Priority 1. Systematizing the available knowledge and expertise to support strategic decision-making;
  2. Priority 2. Enhancing interdisciplinary fieldwork on terrorists’ recruiting grounds, and socialisation techniques;
  3. Priority 3. Using big data in order to analyze the information related to the communication practices of violent radicalization;
  4. Priority 4. Improving existing links between academia including non-EU researchers, policy-makers and other stakeholders.

MINDb4ACT will contribute to such priorities for the improvement of current counter-violent extremism policies (CVEs) in the countries represented in the consortium (Austria, Belgium Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy Poland, Spain and the United Kingdom) and the generation of new ones connecting through collaboration ecosystems (innovative, open, participatory, user-centred environments) to co-design interventions such as research actions, exchanges, strategic-policy exercises, training courses and pilot projects based on social innovation and civic engagement schemes.

All actions will be developed in 5 specific domains: prisons and judiciary system; migration hotspots and asylum centres, schools, cities (peri-urban contexts) and the Internet and media. A special contribution of the project will be the integration of technology based practical solutions with the contribution of the industry.

As mentioned in the call, MINDb4ACT will NOT be “focused on studying the phenomenon of radicalisation” but focused on “developing policy recommendations and practical solutions for end-users”.

    Starszy Specjalista ds. Komunikacji

    I’ve worked at PPHS since November 2017. For a long time I was responsible for the both international and national security projects implementation. Due to the development of PPHS and founding of the Communication Department, I was promoted to the strictly communication-related position.

    Currently, I’m the Communication & Dissemination Manger in the EU-funded PREVENT PCP and SAFE-CITIES projects in the area of security. Also, my responsibilities include managing the online channels administrated by PPHS and supporting the team in ongoing tasks.

    I have a diverse set of skills, which allows me to complete various tasks, such us content creation (texts, photos, videos), communication & processes planning, community and relations building, as well as online platforms management.
