Deputy Mayor of The Hague Ingrid van Engelshoven (responsible for knowledge economy and international development) said: “A contribution from the HSD Development Fund ensures that initiatives from consortia can be brought into practice. Innovations in the security sector are important for the creation of jobs. In addition, these innovations will contribute to a more secure world. As the international city of peace and justice, we are happy to play a significant role in this.”
Applications were assessed on: relevance to security, innovation, cooperation with private- and public parties, and economic effects. Out of 17 applications, 6 were selected and the available 1 million euro will be divided amongst them. The money is made available by the municipality of The Hague. The Digital Evidence Dashboard project by In-pact, TNO and Tracks Inspector is a product that makes it possible for non-technical detectives to determine in an early stage which digital evidence could be of relevance.
