The International Centre for Evidence-Based Criminal Law
The International Centre for Evidence-Based Criminal Law (EB-CRIME) is a network of researchers from different scientific disciplines that collaborate in research projects about evidence in criminal cases.
The research aims to facilitate evidence-based evaluations and decision making by, for example, police officers, prosecutors, forensic medical doctors and judges

First EB-CRIME conference in Uppsala
On the 29th of May 2023, the first EB-CRIME conference was held at the Law Faculty, Uppsala University. All collaborators presented the research they have conducted so far. Multidisciplinary discussions and debates helped us move ahead and further improve methods and understandings of criminal evidence. We also had a guest lecturere, Xabier Agirre Aranburu, Senior Advisor, Office of the Prosecutor, International Criminal Court who gave us an introduction to: "Evidentiary challenges in the context of international criminal law". Furthermore, guest speakers from UU Innovation, Collaboration and Practitioner Education joined us and provided information about their work and opportunities for future arrangements with EB-CRIME. We thank all participants and look forward to the next conference.
