The ‘Digital Cross-Border Cooperation in Criminal Justice’ Conference is just a few days away!

The Conference will be held in Brussels on the 21-22 of January 2020 and is organized within the joint framework of three e-Justice projects: EVIDENCE2e-CODEX, EXEC and e-Evidence. The joint event is focused on bringing together different stakeholders actively working in the field of digital cross-border judicial cooperation in criminal matters – including policy makers, judicial authorities, law enforcement agencies, service providers, civil society and academia – to collectively share knowledge and experience, think together, and develop recommended ways forward on EU-wide application of the projects’ tools.

The agenda is now published and reflects on the efforts of the three projects to achieve effective exchange digital evidence in a digital manner, among competent authorities in the EU Member States and beyond, under the EIO/MLA instruments, in a trusted, secure and admissible way.

The first day will provide for expert presentations and discussions in the following fields:

up-to-date legal and policy issues in the field of digital cross-border cooperation;

most recent IT and infrastructure developments facilitating the legal instruments;

the active involvement of law enforcement agencies in the judicial cooperation chain;

the role of the private sector in the judicial cooperation data flow;

as well as for detailed presentations of the three projects.

The second day, 22 January, will continue the discussions in the field of digital cross-border judicial cooperation in criminal matters with the following sessions:

evidence exchange and standards facilitating the cross-border investigations;

the changes in the legal professions to reflect on the pressing legal and technology needs;

EU best practices and lessons learnt on the adoption of the cross-border cooperation tools.

The event will close with a series of short presentations on the action plans and steps forward undertaken by the project partners to rollout and continue their efforts in the field.

Stay tuned for the conference follow-up!
