Acronym: ALLIES
Period: 02.2023 - 01.2025
Status: Current


The ALLIES project aims at supporting micro (and small) Hosting Server Providers (HSPs) in achieving compliance with the new requirements and obligations under the Regulation 2021/784 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 29 April 2021 on addressing the dissemination of terrorist content online also known as the Terrorism Content Online Regulation (TCO Regulation).

To achieve this, ALLIES adopts four main approaches, each of which targeting skill development and innovation. These four pillars will be respectively focused on:

  • learning and awareness raising,
  • technical development and adaptation,
  • training and education, and
  • experience sharing and reporting mechanisms.

Both the learning and awareness raising initiatives will further expand the capacity of TCO Regulation implementation by designing a taxonomy of terrorist related behaviour online and a risk assessment module. The second pillar will be focused on the development of a specific set of Artificial Intelligence boosted user-friendly tools that will enhance small HSPs capabilities on more accurately recognizing and removing suspicious content. The training and education aspects focus will not only rest on the TCO Regulation’s content, but also on familiarisation activities with the developed tools. The fourth approach aims at creating a safe online environment where end users anonymously share their experiences as well as useful data in addition to a unified reporting form for terrorist-related content and behaviour.

Complementing and cooperating with each other, these four pillars will not only support HSPs, but will also contribute to the fulfilment of the TCO Regulation objectives.

Consortium consists of twelve partners from six different EU Member States – Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, Austria, Spain, Cyprus.

The ALLIES project is coordinated by Law and Internet Foundation and is implemented with the support of the ISF of the European Commission under Grant Agreement № 101080090.
