The Forensic (Science), Investigation and Technology Information Network (FIT-IN) seeks to foster a knowledge sharing network to improve cross-border collaboration between academia, policing partnerships, and related stakeholders.

FIT-IN aims to improve operational effectiveness through information sharing, cross-border and cross-organisational collaborative research and innovation that will:

  • Enable areas of specific strength to work together
  • Avoid project duplication
  • Produce research salient to operational requirement
  • Improve the transition from research concept to operational implementation, thus having the best possible impact
  • Aid in the furtherment of an evidence base for forensic practice.

The Network provides a space for sharing research and innovation ideas and the outputs of collaborative projects, maximising engagement with existing research repositories.

FIT-IN promotes inclusivity in partnership working and a connectivity between practice, research and teaching. Thus the network will:

  • Provide a launch pad for collaborative initiatives
  • Foster both a top down and bottom up approach to research and innovation
  • Promote practice and research led teaching
  • Be inclusive, widening participation and dissemination of research to all organisational and academic levels
  • Promote and share best practice in partnership working within both research and teaching.

More widely, the network aims to contribute to:

  • An empirical evidence base for forensic science practice
  • A culture of research and innovation within operational forensic practice
  • Ensuring robust and efficient forensic processes
  • A synergy between practice, research and teaching.
