Lessen data access and governance obstacles
a circular pattern representing lots of data

LAGO aims to address the lack of domain-specific, high-quality representative datasets for research in the fight against crime and terrorism (FCT) domain, which negatively impacts the development of methods, platforms and tools in the FCT research landscape. Therefore, to accelerate data-oriented innovation, the security research and innovation ecosystem needs a common approach to co-create, deposit, and share data and tools in a trusted and secure manner. LAGO will build an evidence-based and validated multi-actor reference architecture for a trusted EU FCT Research Data Ecosystem (RDE) to achieve this. The RDE will be open, transparent and secure, where FCT-related data can be co-created, made available and shared in a trusted environment.

CENTRIC is leading the analysis of the FCT research data landscape and conducting a gap analysis to identify barriers to data sharing between LEAs and researchers. CENTRIC will also develop recommendations for policy-makers, LEAs and the research community in research data, data spaces and security research.
