Statement of ENFSI on the acts of war in Ukraine

ENFSI has always been proud to be a non-political organisation, dedicated to the truth in science. There are institutes from 39 countries who put aside governmental differences and work together. As enriching as this approach is, in light of Russia´s aggression towards the Ukraine, ENFSI has re-evaluated its neutrality.
With regard to the constitution, ENFSI is in close relation to the Council of Europe and therefore, measures of suspension of the two Russian institutes have been taken within ENFSI’s juridical scope. ENFSI discontinued its cooperation with both institutes at all levels with immediate effect.
Taking into account the newer developments of the 16th of March where the Committee of Ministers decided the Russian Federation to be no longer a member of the Council of Europe, the two Russian institutes in Moscow and St. Petersburg shall also cease to be members of ENFSI.
The necessary coordination measures within the Network to exclude the two institutes are currently being implemented.
Even though these actions are addressed to the North-Western Forensic Science Centre in Saint Petersburg and the Russian Federal Centre of Forensic Science of the Ministry of Justice in Moscow, ENFSI´s intention is targeted towards Russia´s warfare and not towards fellow Russian colleagues. The ENFSI Board considers this measure being an appropriate way to demonstrate ENFSI´s position, which is to condemn the Russian aggression towards Ukraine.

ENFSI´s thoughts are with Ukraine and especially the four Ukrainian ENFSI member institutes.

In consideration to the latest months’ development of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to extend the Early Bird registration fee offer to April 4th, 2022, says Christina Bertler Edlund, Chair of the EAFS 2022 Organization Committee. She continues:

The impact of the pandemic has implied extraordinary conditions for our organization of the conference. Our intention with extending the Early Bird offer is to ensure that potential participants have the possibility to attend EAFS 2022, benefitting the reduced conference fee. This is, as we assume, that some colleagues may hesitate to register due to the Covid-situation. Almost 700 participants are already registered (until 1st February 2022), and we are now looking forward to welcoming additional colleagues to join the conference.

Register your participation to EAFS 2022 on www.eafs2022.eu/registration.

If you have registered to the regular fee, MeetAgain (our Conference Bureau) will credit your registration fee to benefit for the extended Early Bird offer. You may contact MeetAgain on e-mail and phone accordingly: eafs2022@meetagain.se; +46 8 664 58 00.

Death of Ingvar Kopp

On January 13, 2022, we sadly had to say goodbye to Ingvar Kopp, a founding member of ENFSI and father. Ingvar distinguished himself especially in the founding period of ENFSI with his commitment to a community of European Forensic Science Institutes. Partly through his encouragement and support in 1992, he steered ENFSI from a daring idea to the network it is today. He was not afraid to take on the work of chairing the first, provisional board and also demonstrated his dedication in his work as a board member from 2000-2002. But even apart from Board activities, Ingvar has always been at the forefront of spreading and promoting the idea of the European network of forensic institutes. Thus, as head of the Swedish National Laboratory of Forensic Science Linköping, he was active in ENFSI for many more years. We are grateful for the time he volunteered to this good cause and are glad that we were able to appreciate him as our colleague. We mourn with those Ingvar left behind, his relatives and his friends.

The registration for participation in the 9th European Academy of Forensic Science Conference is now open. Registration is made by filling out a digital form on the EAFS 2022 Conference website. The Conference will take place in Stockholm, Sweden, from May 30th to June 3rd, 2022.

The EAFS Conference, being a European Network of Forensic Science Institutes (ENFSI) event, is the most encompassing and relevant European forensic conference, including a broad scope of forensic expert fields.

– The purpose of EAFS is to stimulate development of forensics in Europe by providing a common forum for sharing knowledge and experience says Christina Bertler Edlund, Chairperson of the EAFS 2022 Organising Committee and Senior Adviser of NFC, National Forensic Centre, Swedish Police Authority. NFC will host the Conference on behalf of the Swedish Police and ENFSI.

Approximately 800 – 1,000 European and international practitioners, researchers, managers and stakeholders of the forensic science community alongside EU agencies, academia, industrial partners and international organisations are expected to participate.

The conference venue is situated in the very heart of the Swedish capital which gives plenty of opportunities to explore the city and its surroundings. Among the social activities is a Welcome Reception at Stockholm City Hall, well-known for hosting the Nobel Prize Banquet every year, and the Conference Dinner, which will take place at the Vasa Museum. The participants will dine next to the Vasa ship, the world’s only preserved 17th century ship which is interred in the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

Submission of Abstracts and Workshop Proposals
The Conference will comprise topics such as Chemistry; DNA/Forensic Genetics; Digital Evidence; Forensic Medicine and Toxicology; Marks, Impressions and Biometric Traces; Scene of Crime; Forensic Management; Forensic Statistics; European Perspective; Legal and Ethical Aspects.

– There is still an opportunity to contribute to the Conference Program by submitting abstracts for oral presentations and posters or submitting proposal to facilitate a workshop, informs Christina Bertler Edlund. Deadline for workshop submission is December 10th and deadline for abstract submission is December 19th, so there is still some time yet to submit.

Together for a Safer World
As crime increases to expand across geographical boarders and technical development accelerates, the requisite of co-operation has become vital and valuable. EAFS 2022 has adopted “Together for a Safer World” as the Conference’s motto, to emphasize the importance of cooperation to meet future expectations and requirements on forensic operations. ENFSI’s contribution is a major component in accomplishing this.

– Sharing knowledge and information with each other is necessary to improve our forensic operations and prepare for the future. We are very much looking forward to welcome you all to an exciting and worthwhile conference in May 2022, Christina Bertler Edlund concludes.
