INSPECTr - Intelligence Network and Secure Platform for Evidence Correlation and Transfer

In September 2019, CCI began work on the EU H2020 funded INSPECTr project. The goal of INSPECTr is to deliver a shared intelligent platform for gathering, analysing, prioritising and presenting key data to help in the prediction, detection and management of crime. The platform will consist of national level technologies connecting into a European level platform to enable the cross-correlation of evidence and more effective and successful resolution of cybercrime.

The project will integrate a range of high-tech approaches, including Big Data analytics, cognitive machine learning and blockchain technologies into a shared intelligence platform that will improve digital and forensic capabilities, and reduce the complexity and cost of cross-border collaboration. The platform will incorporate privacy and ethics by design principles, and will take into account relevant national and international legislation. The final developed platform and project results will be freely available to all european LEAs.


Cybercrime is a borderless crime that leverages technology and the internet to exploit businesses, communities and individuals. Law enforcement officers responsible for investigating cybercrime need to be equally able to access cutting edge technology to combat these crimes and to bring down criminal networks.

The INSPECTr project runs from 1 September 2019 until 28th February 2023 and has an overall budget of € 6,997,910. UCD is project coordinator and there are 18 participants from across Europe comprising law enforcement agencies and commercial companies.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Grant Agreement No 833276.
