The Research and Science Working Group met on 4 -5 June 2009 at the “Poliisiammattikorkeakoulu”- the modern-style Finish National Police College in Tampere, Finland.

With regard to e-Net (CEPOL’s electronic network), the working group discussed a draft paper on minimum standards for entries into the ‘knowledge collections’ of the e-Library and discussed if and how international organisations could be granted access.

The imminent launch of the first issue of the European Police Science and Research Bulletin was the main focus of the group with regard to their publication projects. Optimization of the internal editorial procedures was discussed. The group decided that the deadline for submissions for the 2nd bulletin issue shall be extended until the end of June.

Initial proposals for research and science activities in the Work Programme 2011 were reviewed and a list of prioritized activities will be suggested to the Training and Research Committee.

The Chair of the SEPEB Sub-group reported about the progress made in the project and the challenges ahead. Regarding the other survey project, an update on stocktaking police research and science structures in the EU, the working group tested the draft questionnaire, making use of the Finish Police College’s excellent technical infrastructure.

A progress report for the CEPOL Police Research and Science Conference taking place in the Netherlands in November was noted, as well as an update on the preparations for the CEPOL Research Symposium taking place in Sweden at the end of June.

In response to the request to reflect on the European Dimension, the working group found that the European Dimension is a default and prominent element in all its activities.

The members of the working group were also given a lesson on how to work with Workspace (the Document Management System on CEPOL’s e-Net) and improve document-based collaboration.

The 10th Research and Science Working Group meeting will take place 10-11 September 2009 in Slovenia.
