Yesterday, our Executive Director Detlef Schröder visited the Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) and met with its Rector Prof. Inga Žalėnienė.

Cooperation in the areas of research, joint events and helping Ukraine in its ongoing transformation process were key topics discussed, also with MRU Public Security Academy Law Dept. Assoc. Prof. Aurelija Pūraitė who joined the meeting.

CEPOL's Executive Director underlined that cyber security is currently a key challenge for Member States and stressed a need for law enforcement to be up to date with the quickly changing technologies. Both sides expressed interest in cooperation in joint research projects, publications and possible book projects.

MRU's Public Security Academy is implementing the CEPOL Knowledge Centre on CSDP Missions and has co-organised this week a training on Tackling Organised Crime in Host Countries this week.

Detlef Schröder was a keynote speaker presenting Key Challenges for Law Enforcement in Europe at the International Scientific Conference : Problems of Ensuring Public Security' in Lithuania the same day.
