FORMOBILE: An end-to-end forensic investigation chain for mobile devices


To successfully deliver the FORMOBILE project, there will be several meetings between the consortium of partners.

Meetings facilitate collaboration and provide a platform for important topics to be discussed. Meetings will also help maintain the project timelines.

In addition to internal events, there are numerous external meetings related to the topic of mobile investigation. Some will be open to the public, others reserved for experts. The meetings listed have been defined as useful and will complement the overall success of the initiative.

Upcoming Events

  • Project coordinator, Christian Hummert, will attend the seminar organised by the European Commission. The event is an opportunity to engage directly with Policy Officers - informing them of the work FORMOBILE is doing and the content the partners intend to produce. 

    Some of the topics covered include:

    • Providing policy feedback 
    • The role LEAs have in the FORMOBILE consortium
    • The connection of FORMOBILE to previous projects with similar intentions 
    • How FORMOBILE relates to existing networks of LEAs  
    • The role of 'standardisation' in the project 
    • Managing data 
    • Collaboration through training initiatives 
    • Enabling exploitation of the project

Past events

  • This is a practical workshop for groups working on EU projects that manage or produce personal data. The session is a continued discussion from a previous session and later a survey that was distributed in 2019. 

    Personal data is a complex topic as we strive to preserve citizen's rights and their identities, while still having the flexibility for projects to progress. This is critical as the research and development initiatives are for the greater good of Europe and its citizens. 

    The workshop brings together a variety of experts from multiple fields. The diverse group will work through scenarios to look at the latent dangers with data from a legal perspective, and the possible solutions to deal with such situations.  

    Following this, the groups will collaborate to bring ideas and best practices together with the goal of making improvements to the current approach.

  • A significant aspect of the FORMOBILE project is the new innovative tools developed in Work Packages 4 - 6

    These cutting edge solutions will enable LEAs to recover, decrypt and analyse various data, stored on mobile devices. The work involved in developing such solutions is challenging and demanding. An added complexity is that a different partner of the consortium heads each work package — the University of Mittweida, Netherlands Forensic Institute and MSAB respectively. 

    Thus, cooperation and teamwork play a pivotal part in the development process. Regular face to face meetings will assist the individual members of these influential teams. The first of the project takes place in Sweden in mid-December.
