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.

Industry Days 2.0 - agenda

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:

Industry Days 2.0 - agenda

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.

Industry-Days-2.0-graphics-2

To exploit the information and data gathered and analysed through the workshops, the Industry Days model was formed.
