E-PROTECT aims to support the child victims of crime. The project aims to empower the targeted professionals to share experiences, transfer knowledge and build a strong transnational network. E-PROTECT is designed to enhance the capacity of the multidisciplinary professionals working with child victims of crime, the project has adopted a rights-based comprehensive approach. E-PROTECT has underlined to the targeted professionals once again the importance to always put the best interests of the child first. Moreover, the project attempted to reinforce the child’s right to be heard, the right to information, the right to protection and privacy and the right to non-discrimination.


The E-PROTECT project has been implemented by 5 organisations from 5 EU Member States – Bulgaria, Austria, Italy, Greece and Romania under the coordination of Law and Internet Foundation. These organisations were brought together by their desire to combine their efforts and contribute to an improved understanding on child rights established by Directive 2012/29/EU. Furthermore, under the framework of the project, a child victims of crime individual needs assessment methodology has been elaborated to provide tailored approach toward every particular case.

E-PROTECT is also dedicated to raise the overall awareness on child’s rights, granted by Directive 2012/29/EU and to inspire a cooperation among the large variety of professionals which deal with child victims of crime and often are their first point of contact. This is why the project is set to develop a sophisticated online platform which will not only provide exhaustive information about Directive 2012/29/EU practical application and transposition with regards to child rights but also host targeted online events and other advantages.

The project is implemented with the support of the JUST Programme of the European Commission under Grant Agreement № 760270.
