Fighting against Organised Crime in the Eastern Partnership region

Project Description
The main goal of the "Fighting Against Organised Crime in the Eastern Partnership Region" project is to improve the operational cooperation of law enforcement agencies within the Eastern Neighbourhood region, the EU Member States, and with the EU agencies active in the field.
