Dissemination & Exploitation Aspects of ROXANNE

This blog discusses various aspects of communication, exploitation and dissemination related to this project.


ROXANNE is an EU funded project under the ambit of the Horizon 2020 programme, with the primary objective of aiding law enforcement agencies (LEAs) in discovering criminal networks and identifying their members. Launched on the 1st of September 2019, its overall concept is based on the efficient identification and tracking of criminals from speech, text and video data combined with criminal network analysis and backed by a strong legal framework. The project consortium, made of 24 partners representing the public sector, industry and academia, shares the common goal of making the European landscape safe from terrorist activities. 

Crucial horizontal activities such as communication, dissemination and exploitation form an integral part of EU-funded research projects. This is to ensure that the successful execution of projects garners attention among a large audience in Europe and the rest of the world

Capgemini is the lead beneficiary for all dissemination, exploitation and communications activities for ROXANNE. In collaboration with the rest of the partners, Capgemini shall elaborate on the plan of communication activities to promote the project’s research outputs and raise awareness about the project’s objectives and achievements. This shall ensure precise messages are conveyed to each of the identified key stakeholder groups. A combined approach that includes online dissemination, scientific publications, scientific events, and system-level demonstrations shall be followed.

Furthermore, ROXANNE facilitates its partners to exploit results through a variety of channels, such as webinars, websites, online helpline, professional/standards bodies, and press releases. ROXANNE partners will also participate in events related to the domains of the projects which will help increase awareness, disseminate results and connect with more relevant stakeholders. These events would be national and international in scope. The consortium is constantly on the outlook for relevant projects or initiatives which will help us create synergy and bring greater value to community as a whole. Based on the outcomes of the aforementioned work-streams, the partners shall project the recommendations to the key stakeholder groups, including LEAs, policymakers, academics, researchers, and media, among others. This is to ensure the ROXANNE platform addresses issues on the technological, legal, ethical and societal fronts, paving the way for policy recommendations.


ROXANNE is an ambitious project that aims to touch various aspects of European society through its implementation. The use cases show that ROXANNE will have concrete impacts on the investigation of crimes about drug trafficking, financial misdealing, homicide, terrorism and child exploitation. The associated research will create significant room for improvement of technologies for investigative and data-driven crime analyses.
