Abstract: 

On December 9, 2020, the European Commission presented a new Counter-Terrorism Agenda for the EU to step up the fight against terrorism and violent extremism and boost the EU's resilience to terrorist threats. On the same day, the Commission released its proposal to strengthen the mandate of Europol, the EU Agency for law enforcement cooperation, by amending Regulation (EU) 2016/794, as regards Europol’s cooperation with private parties, the processing of personal data by Europol in support of criminal investigations, and Europol’s role on research and innovation.
