Short description of advertisement: 
Dutch law enforcement organization is looking for a new information architecture that offers citizens and businesses the opportunity to analyse data in a confidential manner to solve cold cases.

The Dutch law enforcement organization is looking for ICT related SMEs and start-ups from Europe that offer solutions to share research data on cold cases in a confidential manner enabling citizens and businesses to think along in solving these serious cases. The cooperation would be in the frame of a research or a technical cooperation agreement. This request refers to an innovation challenge published on an open platform.

Investigative capacity is scarce. On a daily basis, the organization has to consider whether extra efforts should be made to try to solve new cases or to keep investigating old or cold cases. The impact of unsolved cases on society is considerable. There is a great deal of willingness on the part of citizens and the business community to contribute to solving these crimes. However, the organization encounters two problems when sharing investigation data:

  • The privacy of suspects and witnesses must be taken into account.
  • Certain knowledge of the facts must remain secret to prevent harming the investigations.

The Dutch law enforcement organization is looking for IT specialists, Creative thinkers, Data analysts, Data Scientists and Data protection / legal-specilists with innovative solutions for extra capacity by calling on the help of citizens and businesses, without violating the confidentiality of the research data.

The Dutch organization is open to different types of partnerships such as a research cooperation agreement or a technical cooperation agreement.

IMPORTANT: This Technology Request refers to an innovation challenge published on the internet platform. If an organization expresses interest before closing date, it will be guided towards this open innovation platform. After registration participants can browse free through other submissions and engage in discussions. All submissions will get feedback by the company on this open platform. 

The challenge closes on November 3rd, 2019. Mind that posts on this platform are not confidential.
Beside open discussions on the platform, the possibilities for sharing of confidential information will be looked into on a case-by-case basis. After that, the firm will select the SME's with whom they would like to look into possibilities for the development of a solution. Once the challenge is closed, expressions of Interest for this technology request will be treated in the traditional way.
