Projet iLEAnet

Innovation through Law Enforcement Agencies networking

iLEAnet
innovation by Law Enforcement Agencies networking
The goal of the present network proposal is to provide to ENSP (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de la Police) the means
• to start building a European research and science network related to innovation in Law Enforcement
• and thus to build a consortium and develop a research proposal for a Coordination and Support action that will be submitted to the call by DG HOME of the European Commission for a project in the Horizon2020 Secure Societies programme under the topic “H2020 SEC-21 GM 2016-2017 Pan European Networks of practitioners and other actors in the field of security - (a) Practitioners (end-users) in the same discipline and from across Europe”, due for submission to the European Commission on 25 August 2016.
The European Union wishes to support networks of practitioners by discipline, i.e. in the same field of activity, in order to initiate and pursue research and innovation, to identify common research and innovation needs, to promote the uptake of results from already funded research activities, to leverage best practices and to shape future standardisation efforts. In particular DG HOME calls for networks of practitioners across the European Union and by discipline to jointly shape research agendas and define requirements, launch pre-commercial procurement, share best practices and drive research in their respective areas. The expected impact of these networks includes as stated by the call text:
• Common understanding of innovation potential, more widely accepted understanding, expression of common innovation and standardization needs among practitioners in the same discipline...
• …Synergies with already established European, national and sub-national networks of practitioners, even if these networks are for the time being only dedicated to aspects of practitioners' work unrelated to research and innovation (in general, to the coordination of their operations).
It is critical for France to have a strong role in this endeavour. By taking the initiative of the iLEAnet project, ENSP will contribute to this objective.
iLEAnet aims at contributing to useful, usable and used science, research and innovation addressing key challenges of LEAs (Law Enforcement Agencies). iLEAnet’s mission will be to build a LEA practitioners network centred on innovation and connected with the RDI stakeholder communities to
• help emerge RDI (RDI = Research, Development and Innovation) strategies centred on LEA challenges and priorities,
• render this RDI effective through structured dialogue between researchers and practitioners
• and favour the uptake of results in the form of solutions, standards, best practices and policy evolutions.
iLEAnet will contribute to developing a sustainable community for LEA-centred research and innovation, connecting a network of stakeholder networks in LEA challenge centred innovation, thereby inducing a ecosystem to foster synergies, innovation and its uptake.
Ongoing LEA relevant national and European research projects will be able to optimise their communication and dissemination by interacting with iLEAnet. iLEAnet will also cooperate with other practitioners networks, in particular those funded under SEC-21-GM, on issues of shared interest, to optimise synergies, for mutual learning and networking opportunities across stakeholder communities.
Last but not least, the iLEAnet findings and results are expected to contribute to the development of new strategies for the European security industry and hence foster the LEA specific part of the European security marketplace and strengthening European competitiveness in this important global market.
