On 23 July 2020, Europol launched an open-ended invitation to submit applications for funding of coordinated operational activities against individuals and organised crime networks that pose a high risk of serious and organised crime to EU Member States. It aims to provide targeted financing for activities of the operational task forces set up in accordance with Europol’s Standard Operating Procedure. Low-value grants (up to €60 000) will be provided to successful applicants to finance operational measures implemented by members of the established operational task forces throughout the year.

This is a new grants scheme launched by Europol in support of Member States’ efforts fighting organised and serious international crime, next to the existing grants awarded for activities carried out in the framework of the EU Policy Cycle / EMPACT.
