The project

Through the Living Lab framework, MINDb4ACT will collectively reassess individual, local, national, and multi-national approaches towards the comprehension, identification and prevention of violent radicalisation.

Understand the process of radicalization and recruiting methods in different contexts and dimensions.
Identify how experts, decision makers and first-line practitioners are framing the problem.
Build an international community of practice for sharing know-how among all stakeholders.
Use technology-based solutions (Big Data, Virtual reality) for analysis, prevention and counter-radicalization
Develop training and capacity building activities based on empirical evidences for end-users.
