In the plenary program dr Annemieke de Vries provided her vision and passion for innovation and research at the NFI. Gregory Mounier talked about boosting innovation in the European Law Enforcement community. In addition, several scientific presentations were given that are connected to the NFOA (Dutch Forensic Research Agenda) workshops. These workshops will be hosted by the Lorentz Center in Leiden in Oktober and November and should provide the basis of an inspiring research agenda for forensic science in the Netherlands. Several themes were introduced by the workshop leaders at the symposium followed by interesting talks on the topic.
Also this year, a poster session was organised during lunch where attendees presented their work and views in the form of a scientific poster. A best forensic PhD best poster and best FSM student poster price was awarded. Congratulations all!
