The European Division received its charter from IAI on the 16th August 2014 under the authority of the IAI President and Chief Operating Officer. A clear need was identified for a representative, European based Division that would be capable of driving forward the agreed objectives of the parent body, as well as the refined objectives appertaining to Europe itself. Similar Divisions have been established in other countries, such as the US and have proved successful and there was a clear desire to emulate this success with a European Division.

The European Division of the IAI is focused on:

  • Providing training and education to members through seminars, conferences and summer schools;
  • Actively promoting research in the fields of forensics and biometrics;
  • Disseminating knowledge and information related to all the disciplines of the forensic sciences and biometrics;
  • Contributing with other established relevant professional organizations, following decisions of the European Council on forensics matters, the guidelines provided by European Commission Monopoly Status Forensic Organizations (e.g. ENFSI) and European Commission funded programs on forensic research cross fertilization (e.g. COST actions);
  • Encouraging the highest ethical standards in the collection, preservation, examination and evaluation of evidence;
  • Actively promoting networking between professionals, researchers, students and technical partners in all forensics and biometrics branches;
  • Contributing to spread relevant information on new technologies and technical solutions for practitioners and researchers.
