Call for proposals 2020 - Artificial Intelligence and security: providing a balanced assessment of opportunities and challenges for Law Enforcement in Europe H2020-SU-AI-2020 Closed!


In order to scale up AI capacities of LEAs across Europe, close their AI skills gap, create synergies and tackle more efficiently their major challenges, it is essential to reach a critical mass through a close cooperation among the LEAs, research teams and industry. In such a way, the initiative would pave the way for a possible future establishment of a European AI hub in support of Law Enforcement, as a gravitational point of all AI-efforts related to LEAs, which would also, among others, contribute per se to achievement, when appropriate, of a European Strategic Autonomy in this critical dimension.


This call covers the following topics:

  • SU-AI01-2020: Developing a research roadmap regarding Artificial Intelligence in support of Law Enforcement   
  • SU-AI02-2020: Secure and resilient Artificial Intelligence technologies, tools and solutions in support of Law Enforcement and citizen protection, cybersecurity operations and prevention and protection against adversarial Artificial Intelligence
  • SU-AI03-2020: Human factors, and ethical, societal, legal and organisational aspects of using Artificial Intelligence in support of Law Enforcement
