Transcrime is the Joint research centre on transnational crime of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, the Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna and the Università degli Studi di Perugia. The center, directed by Professor Ernesto Ugo Savona, has offices in Milan and has a staff of more than 20 people, made up of academic researchers, contract researchers, Ph.D. candidates, interns and administrative personnel. Transcrime is exclusively funded by contracts and funding from private corporations and local, national and international public institutions.
Transcrime employs an integrated approach (criminology, law, economics, statistics, sociology, forensic accounting) and performs applied research to:
Since its establishment, Transcrime has carried out more than 100 research projects. Most of these studies have been funded by national authorities, as well as European and international institutions. To enhance the implementation of its research projects, in 2015 Transcrime together with Università Cattolica found the academic spin-off Crime&tech (www.crimetech.it). It is the point of contact between the needs of the business world and the long-standing experience of Transcrime in the field of criminological research.
Transcrime is a key supporting body of the education activities provided by the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano. In particular, the center coordinates: the Master’s degree in Security Policy (Poli.Si) within the framework of the Master’s program in Political and Social Sciences and the International Ph.D. in Criminology
Moreover, Transcrime provides high level training courses concerning various topics (anti-money-laundering, risk-assessment, crime statistic, etc.). These courses target professionals of the public sector (e.g. law enforcement agencies, officials, public authorities) and of the private sector (professionals of security and compliance, bank and company experts in anti-money-laundering).
Innovative ideas and cutting-edge techniques in the field of criminology and crime prevention
Transcrime is a Joint research center of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, the Alma Mater Studiorum Università di Bologna and the Università degli Studi di Perugia.
Crime&tech (www.crimetech.it) is the spin-off company of the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore stemming from the research experience of Transcrime. Crime&tech translates Transcrime’s research, carried out at national and international level, into models, tools and applications for private companies and public institutions. It offers customised products and services to assess and prevent various crime and security risks, from organised crime to fraud, from thefts to robberies.
In January 2010, the two associated Universities agreed to move Transcrime’s administrative headquarters from the University of Trento to the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore in Milan.
In January 2004 Transcrime became the Joint Research Centre on Transnational Crime of the University of Trento and the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore of Milan and, consequently, is now able to draw on the scientific input of both Universities.
Transcrime grew rapidly thanks to several important projects on transnational crime it carried out for the European Union. In January 2000, Transcrime became an Inter-Departmental Research Centre on Transnational Crime within the University of Trento and thus strengthened its ties not only with the University’s Law Faculty but also with the Faculties of Sociology and Social Research, Economics and Human and Social Sciences. This enhanced the interaction between the fields of criminology, law, economics, statistics, sociology and psychology.
Transcrime started its activity on November 1st, 1994, as a Research Group on Transnational Crime within the Department of Law at the University of Trento. Initially, four graduate students from the Faculty of Law collaborated as research assistants in the activities of the Centre under the direction of its founder, Professor Ernesto U. Savona.
