- Towards sustainable cost and funding mechanisms for civil litigation in Europe
At the heart of effective access to civil justice lies litigation funding and cost management. Access to civil justice has been under pressure due to retrenching governments, high costs, and procedural inefficiency. The Vici project will assess new pathways to civil justice funding and cost schemes, with a view to developing a balanced financing system, thereby securing access to justice in Europe.

- Focusing on the Right Things in the Port of Rotterdam (FORT-PORT)
FORT-PORT aims to provide better insight into how criminal organisations involved in cocaine trafficking and human smuggling operate in and around the port of Rotterdam. These insights will enable governance actors to intervene proactively and thus prevent related violence and harm. We aim to shed light on the bottlenecks and success factors in the existing public-private partnerships in the port and stimulate exchange with other ports.

- Digital Governance (DIGOV)
The Digital Governance project (DIGOV) asks which rules and norms are needed to enable Big Data and Artificial Intelligence to fully support our individual and societal interests. To that aim DIGOV organises international conferences, a visiting scholar programme, policy consultations and builds up an open teaching platform. DIGOV is also the name of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence that has been awarded by the European Commission to Erasmus School of Law, in conjunction with the Law School of the University of Leeds (UK) and the Law School of Bar-Ilan University (Israel).
- AI Multi‐Agency Public Safety Issues (AI MAPS)
AI MAPS focuses on the ethical, legal and social aspects of AI (ELSA) development and application - to prevent the solution from being worse than the problem. This project’s 20 partners across academic research, government, business, and civil society will create a mutual-learning ecosystem of quadruple helix agents to responsibly guide the growing use of AI applications. Together, they will combine their knowledge, experiences and perspectives to produce ELSA guidelines to best meet diverse citizen needs and an investment framework that will provide guidance on what kinds of AI applications are worth investing in. Funded by Dutch Research Council (NWO) Synergy Theme Artificial Intelligence.
