Pericles 2020 programme aims to help protect the euro against counterfeiting.

Text:

Pericles 2020 will finance training, exchange and assistance programmes designed to better equip authorities in the fight against fake euros and related fraud.The euro continues to be an attractive target for organised crime groups active in counterfeiting money, not only in Europe but also in other regions of the world. The international dimension of counterfeiting calls for supranational coordination in tackling it. The Pericles 2020 programme will reinforce the continued vigilance, training and technical assistance, needed to effectively protect the euro against counterfeiting. Pericles 2020, which is worth around €1 million a year, will enter into force the day after the Regulation is published in the Official Journal.
