The PROPHETS consortium met for the third time on May 8th and 9th in Granada, Spain. The academic, forensic, and police partners held fruitful discussions, including on research regarding terrorism and serious crimes, requirements for the technologies behind PROPHETS, and the validation and implementation of the project.
Throughout the meeting, the consortium was accompagnied by Ann Massai from Antwerp PD and her comprehensive expertise - thanks for your valuable input!
On December 12th and 13th 2018, the second consortium meeting of PROPHETS took place at the Zagreb Police Academy with experts from 15 academic, forensic, and police institutions.
Among other topics, the Consortium discussed results from research in 10 countries concerning the relation between civic perception of policing and collection of personal data and online behavior. The goal was to examine the acceptance of security measures taken by police, other law enforcement agencies, and private actors to prevent cybercrime.
Special thanks goes to our external advisors - Dr. des. Matthias Jakob Becker (Humboldt University) and Detective Chief Inspector Doug Blackwood (Humberside Police) - who accompanied and supported us during the two days with their professional experiences!
