Call For Papers

Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) is pleased to announce that it is organising for the first time the Cyber Innovation Forum (CIF).

The Cyber Innovation Forum aims to bring together all relevant players within law enforcement, private industry and academia to exchange knowledge, expertise and experience. At the same time, the goal is to identify cutting-edge cyber innovation and transformative solutions in order to advance EU law enforcement’s capability to prevent, detect, and investigate cybercrime.

The Cyber Innovation Forum will take place at Europol’s Headquarters in The Hague from 18 to 19 June 2024. The conference is open to representatives of law enforcement, the private industry, the public sector and academia. Further information related to registration will be announced in due time.
