Summary

Thank you to all who attended the European Serious and Organised Crime conference 2013.

Europe faces serious security challenges that continue to grow in scale and sophistication. The activities of international organised crime rings are having an increasingly negative impact. Criminals are making enormous profits from counterfeit goods and contraband at the expense of taxpayers, legitimate industry and consumers.

Further Information

 

What role can business and industry play in helping the authorities to tackle criminal activity, and can technological solutions help to provide a bridge over troubled economic waters, supporting crime detection and prevention in Europe?

 

What progress is being made in the implementation of the EU's Internal Security Strategy, launched in 2010, and what are the key priorities for both policymakers and law enforcement agencies?

 

The inaugural European Serious and Organised Crime Conference 2013 addressed these issues and sought to find solutions to some of the most pressing security challenges. Co-hosted by Europol and the British Chamber of Commerce in Belgium, the conference convened a number of high-level political and industry figures and was an unprecedented opportunity for stakeholders to engage on these issues.
