SPA Forensic Services




The overall aim of this event is to create new and refresh existing relationships and networks between researchers, forensic scientists, police officers and partner practitioners who share interests in forensic science, evidence and investigation. It is also about facilitating academic-practitioner-industry conversations around issues of mutual interest in order to set an agenda for future collaborative working to enhance and support the development of forensic science in Scotland.

With this in mind, it is intended that participants should use the event to identify topics for further ongoing collaboration which they will be invited to submit as proposals for research projects to be funded from an Evidence and Investigation Collaborative Project Fund. The sandpit is open to all members of the SIPR network and all practitioners and organisations with an interest in forensic science.

Three main themes for the day have been identified through dialogue with practitioners involved in the Policing 2026 and Forensic Science 2026 strategies:

  1. Regulation and legislation of forensic sciences
  2. Evidence capture and communication
  3. Delivering forensic science at source
PROGRAMME:

Registration and coffee/tea will be from 09.30, and lunch and refreshments will be provided.

PLEASE CHOOSE ONE OF THE ABOVE THEMES FOR ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS WHICH WILL BE HELD IN THE MORNING

EVIDENCE AND INVESTIGATION COLLABORATIVE PROJECT FUNDING:

A key objective of the sandpit is that it should stimulate connections and ideas that can be taken forward and actioned beyond the sandpit itself. SIPR will award Evidence & Investigation Collaborative Project Funding grants (up to £10,000) to support ongoing activity that emerges from the sandpit. More details of this Call will be provided shortly.
