2021 CEPOL Research and Science Conference
07 April 2021

You can now register for our next edition of the CEPOL Research & Science Conference that will take place between 5-7 May 2021. The conference is open to officials of European law enforcement organisations and to qualified scholars from universities and research institutions, actively working with law enforcement institutions.

This year, CEPOL has the honour to organise the conference in partnership with Mykolas Romeris University (Lithuania), and, for the first time in its history, we will host the event exclusively online.

Τhe title for this year’s conference is ‘Pandemic Effects on Law Enforcement Training & Practice: Taking early stock from a research perspective’. The three-day event will feature around 60 renowned speakers and dozens of exciting sessions, including topics like the role of law enforcement in tackling disinformation campaigns and fake news in pandemic times or policing innovations against domestic abuse during the Covid-19 crisis.

Furthermore, the conference will explore how organised crime infiltrated the Covid-19 economy and examine the ways the pandemic affected the mental health of police officers and trainees, and what can be done to improve their situation.

At the CEPOL Research and Science conference, a special focus will be also given to the challenges and creative approaches of police training during the pandemic, with inspiring examples and case studies from the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany or Portugal.

Many questions have come out of the current situation that CEPOL seeks to answer at this year's Research and Science Conference. If we sparked your interest, please register on this page.

Registration is open until 30 April 5:00 PM CET.

The conference schedule is available here.

Information about the speakers can be found on this link.

CEPOL Research and Science Conferences

Since 2003, the CEPOL Research & Science Conferences provide a stimulating intellectual environment that brings together ideas and perspectives of practitioners, trainers and educators in policing and other areas of law enforcement, with researchers and academic scholars from Europe and the international sphere. Participants of this forum can inform and be informed about new scientific findings, ongoing research projects and challenges for police and policing. Papers discussed during CEPOL Research and Science Conferences are published in a special Conference edition, so that ideas and knowledge can be shared within the law enforcement community, fostering and facilitating broader discussions and becoming a source of inspiration for the future.
