Who does it concern?

The EVIDENCE project brings on board a broad range of stakeholders:

  • policy makers that must regulate the use of electronic evidence in their national scenario - members of the European Commission, Interparty Committees and sub-Committees at the European Parliament, Interparty Committees and sub-Committees at the national parliaments; individual MEP and MP; representatives of the national governmental bodies including Ministries of Justice, etc.; law enforcement agencies’ official representatives; representatives of judges associations and bars;
  • practitioners:
    • LEAs officers in gathering electronic evidence;
    • judges and magistrates evaluating such electronic evidence in trials;
    • prosecutors and lawyers, using electronic evidence for conducting someone’s defence;
  • digital forensics consultants, incl. experts in digital forensics; consulting companies in forensics, associations of forensics; companies dealing with security issues, critical service/infrastructure providers
  • research and academia representatives, working in fields related to collection, use and exchange of electronic evidence;
  • media and civil society following the latest news/case studies in the field.

All EVIDENCE activities are designed in such a way to be able to reach these stakeholders and to find the most appropriate tools to make the project findings and outcomes usable and accessible to them. Dissemination of the project outcomes includes a combination of face-to- face interactions and publication and distribution of key policy messages and recommendations (through reports, policy briefs and the project website) to the relevant target groups via recognized multipliers like civil society organizations and the media.
