This project was carried out in cooperation with the Romanian Ministry of Justice and the Croatian Judicial Academy. It had a budget of EUR 297,000, in which the IRZ was involved with EUR 10,000. The project began in February 2017 with a kick-off meeting and was completed in December 2017.

The aim of the project was to improve cooperation between EU Member States on the implementation of the EU Directive 2010/64 on the right to interpretation and translation in criminal proceedings and on the application of Directive 2012/13 on the right to information in criminal proceedings.

The activities of this project comprised a kick-off meeting, an analysis of training needs, a working meeting of experts as well as six seminars held in Romania, Croatia and Germany. A handbook was also prepared based on the conclusions drawn from the discussions with the participants during the seminars. The project was concluded with a two-day conference in Constanta, Romania.
