Press Release/News

On 14 October 2015 Europol published a Call for Proposals to fund EMPACT actions within the 2016 framework. This is a second call restricted to EMPACT participants designed to support the 2016 Operational Action Plans which are currently being drafted but will eventually be approved by the Committee on Internal Security of the European Union in Council Decisions, within the 2014-17 EU policy cycle for organised and serious international crime. The funding originates from the ISF-Police component of the EU Internal Security Fund and Europol has been entrusted with its implementation in a Delegation Agreement signed with DG HOME on 22 December 2014. The call is designed to further enhance the operational aspects of the joint activities, based on the experience gained under the first Call for Proposals launched earlier this year.
