Pericles 2020


The specific objective of Pericles 2020 is to protect the euro banknotes and coins against counterfeiting and related fraud. Actions supported under this programme should provide technical, scientific and operational support, and support the organisation of workshops, meetings and seminars, placements and exchanges of staff from competent national authorities involved in this area. Furthermore, financing will be available to purchase equipment to be used by specialised anti-counterfeiting authorities.

Eligible actions under this programme will support awareness raising actions on the need for closer cooperation between competent authorities and on legislation related to the euro, training related to legislation, cooperation, investigation and security features of the euro and to develop and strengthen mechanisms and exchange of best practises on a European level.
