On 3rd and 4th March 2022, the French Ministry of Interior represented iProcureNet and participated to a key event organised by the Directorate for International Security Cooperation (DCIS) of the French Ministry of Interior.
Titled “European Network of Law Enforcement Technology Services (ENLETS) TIG”, this event was held in the framework of the French Presidency of the EU. The aim of the conference was to explore ways of meeting the needs and the standards of the European Commission and/or other European actors.
Furthermore, this was an occasion to promote and present the iProcureNet project, to exchange knowledge and strategies, and get inspired by the positive experiences of other projects funded by the European Commission.
Among others, the projects and networks ILEAnet (which aims to build a sustainable organisational Law Enforcement Agency (LEA) practitioners network focused on research and innovation), and i-LEAD (a collective of experienced professionals exercising individual or team coaching) were invited.
Two French innovative solutions were presented: DATALAB – active in the field of IT solutions – and PCSTORM – a project concerning the modernisation of the internal security sector, with a focus on information systems).
Moreover, representatives of the Europol Innovation Lab, the European Commission, and the Dutch police took part to the meeting, which therefore helped disseminating the concept of the iProcureNet project and fostered new connections both in France and in Europe.
