The ECTC Advisory Network on terrorism and propaganda connects counter terrorism experts from academia, private sector and law enforcement. Through this network, the experts exchange knowledge and expertise from their respective fields on recent developments in counter terrorism.
The "Terrorism evolving: insights from research" conference focuses on the latest updates on terrorist groups, ideology, propaganda, and early detection of potential terrorists. Selected research papers will be published on Europol’s website.
The conference is on invitation only.
