SAFE Foundation is proud to announce the award of two Horizon Europe projects, EMERITUS and PERIVALLON.

With a total budget of €10.904.635, both projects have been funded by the EU under the Call for proposal HORIZON-CL3-2021-FCT-01-09 – “Fight against organised environmental crime” and are focused on tackling organised environmental crimes.

The EMERITUS project, managed by a Consortium of 19 Partners representing 8 EU and non-EU countries, aims at designing a new generation of technological tools to facilitate the collaboration and networking between Law Enforcement Agencies and Border Guards through a digital platform.
Furthermore, EMERITUS aims at developing an effective investigation protocol on environmental crimes, that is supported by a training program to enhance investigative capabilities at a national and international level.

The PERIVALLON project, managed by a Consortium of 23 Partners representing 8 EU and non-EU countries, aims at designing a platform dedicated to detecting environmental crimes. Thanks to the integration of data from multimodal sensors, satellite images and videos from drones, and even X-ray scans, detecting, identifying, and preventing environmental crimes will be possible.

The development of these projects will be also aided by the exploitation of the former military base Calvarina (new Training & Testing Facility managed by SAFE), where the testing of novel technologies will take place. The Calvarina base, then, establishes itself as a reference point to test innovative tools and technologies, thanks to its flexible, multi-scenarios and confidential area.
