This experience will allow exchange of best practices at European level and strengthen transnational judicial and police cooperation. This achievement would be extremely important in view of an efficient and consistent implementation of the EU legal framework on terrorism, above all in the light of the forthcoming adoption of the new EU Directive on combating terrorism. Regarding this new legislative act, the European Parliament has already stressed the great importance of reinforcing cross-border cooperation and information exchange.

Moreover, through the collaboration with the European Network of Penitentiary Training Academies (EPTA) and with theTraining School of the Judiciary of Belgium, the project will add a transnational value to the training process of the practitioners involved in prevention of, and fight against, violent radicalisation in prison and in the community, as well as it aims to enhance the connection with the judiciary involved in this process, thus contributing to draft a training intervention that might be proposed to other European countries.
