The lack of internal border control in EU and the increasing use of Internet technologies give EU criminality a cross-border dimension. Consequently, fast and secure procedures for access and exchange of electronic evidence in foreign jurisdictions is a vital prerequisite for the effective fight against crime. In response to the needs, EVIDENCE2e-CODEX builds upon the achievements of two projects - e-CODEX (2010-2016) and EVIDENCE (2014-2016), combining the EVIDENCE Road Map for harmonizing the exchange of electronic evidence in EU with the e-CODEX technological instruments used for the cross-border exchange of information between MS authorities in the field of justice.
EVIDENCE2e-CODEX involves 19 partners from 10 different Member States. Amongst the partners are representatives of different law families, including six MS Ministries of Justice, which will assist for the implementation of the project achievements in practical scenarios within the judiciary of the involved Member States.
The project is funded by Justice and Consumers General Directorate of the European Commission under Justice Programme 2014-2020.
