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.

Industry Day 2.0 will take place in the Netherlands on 7th October 2020. The one-day event, which is dedicated to LEAs and Industry – strives to forge mutually beneficial relations between industry experts and law enforcement specialists. Moreover, with the additional presence of procurement specialists, Industry Days are an attempt to bring together critical members of the security ecosystem that can spearhead new approaches to the complex security issues faced across Europe.

We encourage you to participate in the i-LEAD Industry Days. The event is free of charge. The registration form for participants can be found here.

Industry Days 2.0

Discussion Areas

i-LEAD Industry Days 2.0

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.

Technology Areas

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.

What is i-LEAD?

i-LEAD logo

An EU funded project running under the H2020 initiative. i-LEAD brings together Law Enforcement Agencies from across Europe, working together to unravel many of the complex issues faced across numerous crime topics.

As well as the lasting network, the project outputs include recommendations on the EU level; connected to technology, standards and procurement opportunities that can boost the uptake of innovations and the interoperability between LEAs. Thus, enhancing the success of law enforcement investigations – especially in cross border crimes.

Many of the challenges and issues faced by LEAs are uncovered in i-LEAD through a series of yearly workshops covering 5 thematic areas managed by 5 practitioner groups (PG), located across Europe.
