- development of training curriculums;
- development of indicators handbook;
- development of e-learning platform;
- training of first-line Hellenic Police officers working within the Reception and Identification Centers in vulnerability identification, through the use of training simulators.
The Project will be implemented in partnership with the Center of Security Studies (KEMEA) which acts as the Project Partner.
