KIC call “Subversive Crime”

January 28, 2022

Holland High Tech (TKI HTSM), the coordinating top sector of the “Knowledge and Innovation Agenda Veiligheid”, has announced that NWO has launched the KIC call “Subversive Crime”. The “KIA Veiligheid” core team oversees substantive implementation of this agenda. This call is an important step in the integrated approach to organized crime mission of the aforementioned KIA.

Technology is essential in fighting crime

To stay one step ahead of subversive crime, research is needed that focuses on (new) technologies, including biometrics, sensors, smart materials and image, speech and data technology. This innovation and knowledge development can make a difference when it comes to data collection and analysis of subversive crime. Combating and preventing subversive crime becomes more effective if science, government, the business community and citizens work together more intensively and in a more targeted way to jointly develop innovative intervention models.
