2021 NIJ Forensic Science R&D Symposium

2021 NIJ Forensic Science R&D Symposium

Overview

The Forensic Technology Center of Excellence (FTCoE) will be assisting the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) in hosting the annual NIJ Forensic Science Research and Development (R&D) Symposium on February 16, 2021 from 10:00 AM ET to 5:40 PM ET.

NIJ and the FTCoE are committed to improving the practice of forensic science and strengthening its impact through support of research and development, rigorous technology evaluation and adoption, effective knowledge transfer and education, and comprehensive dissemination of best practices and guidelines to agencies dedicated to combating crime. Advancements within forensic science necessitate a forum to spread information and awareness.

During the R&D Symposium, researchers and practitioners will meet to discuss, discover, and share new approaches and applications to increase the impact of forensic science and elevate its status. The R&D Symposium is specifically designed to bring together practitioners and researchers to enhance information-sharing with the goal of moving research from theory to practice.

This year's event will be completely virtual. Participants will have access to a virtual poster session and be able to choose freely between two concurrent presentation tracks. Those who register for the symposium will automatically gain access to the virtual poster session as well.
