(Ref. HOME/2013/ISEC/AG/ FINEC/4000005223)

On 17 July 2014 it started the European project “ICARO – Instruments to remove Confiscated Asset Recovery’s Obstacles” co-funded by the “Prevention of and Fight against Crime” Programme of the European Union.


The project ICARO, of which C.d.I.E. is partner, aims to improve the knowledge on the social re-use of assets confiscated from organized crime as well as to elaborate and promote a model of governance able to reach effective results.

Particular attention will be given to the problems of confiscated companies that, due to the long periods passing from confiscation to recovery, suffer heavy negative consequences in terms of production and employment.
