The Festival is an opportunity for forensic practitioners to find out more about the latest academic research & development. Over the course of a week, leading experts will be covering topics from hands-on physical forensics, through to digital evidence and forensic strategy.

Details & sign-up

Announcing the festival, Carolyn said:

“I was trying to think of a way to bring two parts of the community together: police forensic staff and academic researchers. There’s so much exciting research going on that it can be hard to keep up with. Through the wonder of technology, we can put on a week of events that people can join from their laptop or watch later.

“The FCN research groups have identified sharing current research and emerging technology as a key focus for 2021. I hope forensic practitioners will treat this as a great opportunity to gain some valuable CPD.”

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points will be awarded on the basis of one point per session attended (or watched on catch-up). Certificates will be made available for download from our website after the event.
