SHUTTLE, acronym for ‘Scientific High-throughput and Unified Toolkit for Trace analysis by forensic Laboratories in Europe’, is a Horizon 2020 project financed by the European Commission (EC) aiming to develop a toolkit which will facilitate the analysis of microtraces collected in crime scenes.
More precisely, the forensic institutes will organise and manage the procurement of R&D services involving risk benefit sharing under market conditions and competitive development in phases.
Thanks to the EC funding (7.4M€ for the subcontracted activities), the SHUTTLE project will contribute to strengthening forensic collaboration across countries and institutions in Europe and possibly beyond. It will catalyse innovation by allowing public authorities to invest cost effectively in innovation by sharing costs and lessons learnt.
SHUTTLE started in May 2018 and will run for 48 months. It has a budget of 10.5M€ and a consortium of 8 partners led by the MINISTERE DE L’INTERIEUR.
