On 11th of July 2018 the Representation of the European Region Tyrol-South Tyrol-Trentino hosted the final conference for the EU funded Project ‘PAYBACK: Towards a EU Data Management System for Seized Assets’.in Brussels.

The conference will present the results of the Project, that developed an innovative ICT tool aimed at improving the efficiency of seized assets management, and tested it as a prototype in selected Member States.

The Project PAYBACK originates from the recognition that currently a great number of assets lay in bad conditions and lose value before final confiscation, in turn undermining the effectiveness of the actions carried out by the prosecutors. This is mainly as the consequence of the lack of a comprehensive and updated data management system for mapping seized assets.

The Project is coordinated by the eCrime research group of the Faculty of Law of the University of Trento and carried out in cooperation with CSD (BG), INHESJ (FR), CRJ (RO), Fondazione Nazionale dei Commercialisti (IT), and with the support of: AGRASC (FR); CAB (IE); Commission on Illegal Assets Forfeiture (BG); COSC (BE); Asset Management Section, Ministry of Interior (CZ); Openbaar Ministerie, Functioneel Parket (NL); Rome Tribunal (IT). It is co-financed by the European Commission under the ISFP 2014 programme.
