Following the relative success of the first edition of i-LEAD’s Industry Day in 2019, the consortium had no hesitation in committing to another event in 2020. The feedback, experience and popularity of the first session provide encouraging steps for an improved and more valuable second meeting.
Due to the current COVID pandemic, we are moving the i-LEAD Industry Day and Research Day online. The risks and challenges linked to having physical meetings were deemed too high; thus, we will run online sessions with a plan to hold physical meetings in The Hague in due course.
Due to the event now running online, we are afraid that only members of Law Enforcement can join the sessions. All other parties are encouraged to join the Research Day running in November. The registration form can be found here.
Find out more about the i-LEAD Research Day which follows Industry Day 2.0. The events are organised in association with the Europol Innovation Lab and “The Hague Security Delta” (HSD).
Agenda and Selection Process
In an attempt to provide value for the audience and deliver engaging sessions closely linked to the current gaps, needs and challenges of LEAs – we allowed them to choose the solutions to be presented.
The officers reviewed the resources of interest in their domain – scoring them accordingly. The solutions with the highest scores are invited to take part in secure online sessions where they will present further details of their products. These sessions will be paired with interactions with the LEAs in a participatory Q&A session and dialogue.
For those that register, we will send out links to each day, allowing you to pick and choose the sessions you attend.
Each day, the event will follow the same structure:
The goal of the event is to provide an atmosphere and environment that is conducive for collaboration and deep discussion about technology and the real-world issues facing Law Enforcement. Providing this setting creates an opportunity for industry and Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) to discuss the cutting-edge solutions that can assist with the known needs and gaps identified during the Practitioner Workshops.
Although the crime areas differ in practicality, many of the technologies that could help support Law Enforcement and improve the fight against criminals are cross-sectional. Moreover, due to the demand for innovative solutions, technologies that offer wider coverage and that can integrate with existing systems are very attractive.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning solutions that supplement other technologies or can integrate with other solutions are a key focus area in 2020. The Technology Gaps and Needs covering the Crime Areas, regularly mention these requirements.
