PRIDE - A New Platform for Drugs Trafficking Control

The PRIDE web-based system will be presented and discussed with high level national and European authorities, including EC-DG HOME, Europol, the EMCDDA, the Belgian Ministry of Justice and the Italian National Antimafia and Antiterrorism Direction.

The Conference is organised as a conclusion to the PRIDE project, co-funded by Drugs Policy Initiatives, Justice Programme of the European Union. This project aimed to create a web-based platform, that law enforcement institutions can use to better fight drugs trafficking in Europe.

The PRIDE platform has been designed to support cross-border investigations and police intelligence operations with data on chemical profiles and characteristics of drug seizures. This allows law enforcement agencies to better understand drug trafficking trends and better coordinate their actions.

During this conference, the results achieved over two years of intensive work will be presented. We are also pleased to welcome high-level speakers from the European Commission– DG HOME, the Europol, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction, the Belgian Ministry of Justice and the National Antimafia and Antiterrorism Direction.
