In general, facts and research have shown that the welfare of the European Union is disturbed by criminal incidents. Police forces face daily acts of crime, such as intentional homicide and assault, drug trafficking, human and illegal firearm trafficking, and other forms of illicit activities associated with the presence of organised crime groups (OCGs) in the EU.The overarching objective of LAW-GAME is to train police officers on the procedure, enhancing the transition between the theory and real-life practice through gamification technologies in a safe and controlled virtual environment.To achieve this, the project introduces an attractive approach for assisting the development of core competencies required to perform intelligence analysis through a series of AI-assisted procedures for crime analysis and the prediction of illegal acts, all within the LAW-GAME game realm.

European University Cyprus (ΕUC) was established as Cyprus College in 1961 and was granted university status in 2007. Over the last decade, the university has fostered a culture of modernization that has resulted in levels of growth that have exceeded all expectations, upgrading the quality of tertiary education in Cyprus and defining a clear international orientation for the university and the country. Presently, European University Cyprus has five schools: the School of Humanities, Social and Education Sciences, the School of Business Administration, the School of Sciences, the School of Law and the School of Medicine. In addition, European University Cyprus operates a Distance Education Unit. EUC is the only university in Cyprus and Greece to be rated by QS TOP UNIVERSITIES (QS Stars), which ranks many of the most prestigious universities in the United States, Canada and Europe. The University has been assessed with the highest distinction of 5-Stars in Teaching, Facilities, Inclusiveness, Social Responsibility and Internationalization.

Role within the project:
Having been involved as a technological provider and as coordinator in many European research projects, EUC will be the Project Coordinator of LAW-GAME and will lead all aspects concerning the dissemination of project results. Apart from that, will be involved in several technical tasks concerning in particular the requirements analysis and engineering, design of the reference architecture and technical specifications, and LAW-GAME ecosystem integration, as well as being actively involved in the LAW-GAME game design and the training curricula and training assessment framework development. Finally, EUC will be the responsible partner for developing the LAW-GAME Integrated Training Platform, a cloud-based system for social VR-based learning.
