As part of the #ErasmusDays three-day celebration of the Erasmus + programme in Europe and around the world, IPS Innovative Prison Systems hosts two informational, commemorative and sharing events.

Innovative Prison Systems (IPS) has participated or is currently participating in more than 15 Erasmus + projects. Projects under this programme set up strategic partnerships for IPS to promote innovation and the exchange of best practices in the criminal justice system.
The areas of intervention of the projects developed by IPS relate to contemporary social issues, specifically in the area of Justice and Criminal Justice, namely: 1) innovation; 2) improving skills to cope with radicalisation and extremism; 3) improving juvenile justice systems; 4) promoting the rehabilitation and reintegration of people in conflict with criminal law; and 5) sensitisation and training to deal with ageing and mental health in prisons.
