Research Innovation to Implementation in Forensic Science Symposium (RI2I)

June 19, 2019 - June 20, 2019

For crime laboratories, transferring forensic science research into practice is a challenging problem. Thousands of research papers are published in forensic science journals every year, yet many innovations never make it to the crime lab.

What can the forensic science community do differently so that new technologies come online faster? How can we reduce the obstacles to successful innovation?

On June 19-20, 2019, NIST will convene a symposium aimed at answering these questions.

Join the community at RI2I, where forensic scientists, researchers, and technology transfer experts will come together to explore ideas for speeding innovation in the nation’s crime labs.
