The 8th Research and Science Working Group meeting was held on 26 and 27 March 2009 in Paris, France.

One of the meeting's points was the discussion of the “new governance draft paper” issued by the Czech Presidency. A number of recommendations regarding mandate and membership of a future Working Group on research and science were formulated and were fed back to illustrate the RSWG's position.

Other issues on the agenda were the first drafting of Research and Science activities for the work programme 2011, as well as reviews of the initial meeting of the Research and Science Correspondents and the “Research and Science Information Seminar”.

CEPOL's e-Net matters were addressed when criteria for submissions into the scientific collections of the e-Library were defined and the procedures for granting access to academic experts were debated. Furthermore, baring in mind future document-related collaboration methods, RSWG members were introduced to e-Net's 'Workspace' area.

Progress regarding publications was achieved by defining the next steps of the “handbook-project” and the stage was set for the launch of the 1st issue of the European Police Science and Research Bulletin.

Finally efforts were focussed on the forthcoming Research and Science activities, in particular the Research Symposium in June in Sweden and the Annual CEPOL Police Research and Science Conference in November in the Netherlands.
