The Saxion lectorate Advanced Forensic Technology, led by Dr. Jaap Knotter, is collaborating with partners to develop a method to tackle cold cases. Students and volunteers are involved to revitalize old, unsolved cases. The university will unveil some possibilities and how new technology can aid investigations during the Biggest Knowledge Festival in the Netherlands on June 14.
Together with Pandora Intelligence, Saxion is creating a murder database based on open sources, which could be helpful in solving such cases. The initiative aims to contribute to a safer society and support police efficiency, encouraging student and volunteer engagement while respecting the authority of law enforcement.
