The National Forensic Centre (NFC) of the Swedish Police Authority is proud to invite you to the 9th European Academy of Forensic Science Conference that will be held in Stockholm from the 30th May to the 3rd June 2022.

The motto of the conference “Together for a Safer World” has become even more relevant following the serious pandemic situation that we all have been affected by. The motto has been chosen to emphasize the importance of cooperation in order to meet future expectations on the forensic community.

The event will focus on transformation of forensic science due to new technical possibilities, developments concerning the fundamentals of forensic science and new categories of crime. This means that we need to be innovative in the forensic approaches to generate results that will benefit a transparent judicial process.

This can be facilitated by combining knowledge from different areas of expertise. Since technology develops at an accelerating speed, it is essential to keep the issues of quality, competence, human factors and social responsibilities on top of mind.

We are looking forward to welcome you to the 9th EAFS in Stockholm 2022!

Head of Department National Forensic Centre, NFC

The ENFSI Board

The conference week offers a broad program covering activities of all ENFSI Expert Working Groups (17 EWGs) and Standing Committees (2). Traditionally, forensic medicine and toxicology is also part of the EAFS program, and Stockholm is no exception.

The conference was postponed from 2021 to 2022 due to the pandemic. Meeting in person at EAFS 2022, 30th May to 3rd June, will give us the opportunity once again to learn and interact with colleagues in the forensic community and stakeholders.

ENFSI as an organization will be present during the EAFS. Learn more about ENFSI at;

  • ENFSI exhibition booth in the Auditorium (Norra Latin)
  • ENFSI EWGs posters, just outside of the Auditorium (Norra Latin)
  • The two standing committees will make oral presentations during the European Day
  • ENFSI Project Exhibition Booths, during the European Day, will present a number of ENFSI project co-funded by the EU. (Auditorium, Norra Latin)

The National Forensic Centre (NFC) in the Swedish Police Authority, is the organizer and host of the conference. NFC has chosen the motto “Together for a Safer World”- and we strongly support this since it is what ENFSI and international cooperation within the forensic science community is all about!


The ENFSI Board and Secretariat look forward to meeting you all very soon!
