COST action No CA16101 “MULTI-modal Imaging of FOREnsic SciEnce Evidence - tools for Forensic Science
The main objective of this Action, entitled ‘MULTI-modal Imaging of FOREnsic SciEnce Evidence (MULTI-FORESEE)- tools for Forensic Science’, is to promote innovative, multi-informative, operationally deployable and commercially exploitable imaging solutions/technology to analyse forensic evidence.
Head of the SFSB Biological and Chemical Investigations Department M.Rēpele is a member of the Steering Committee of the Action. The Action is scheduled to continue until October 2020.
COST is the longest-running European framework supporting trans-national cooperation among researchers, engineers and scholars across Europe.
ENFSI Monopoly Programme 2014. The project “Towards the Development of Pan-European Databases in Forensic Science”
Activity N5
Aim of the project: development of a data platform for the combination of various existing databases and research-projects in the field of forensic document examination. This activity will bring together existing diverse European data collections in the field of document examination e.g. writing inks, document security features, printer identification methods (inks, toners, dot patterns etc.).
The activity N5 is implemented within the framework of the ENFSI European Document Examination Working Group with participation of 18 forensic science institutions. Latvia is represented by the State Forensic Science Bureau.

Find a Forensic Expert (JUST/2014/JACC/AG/E-JU/6963)
The SFSB in co-operation with Estonian and Lithuanian forensic science institutions has started development of the Unified Register of Forensic Science Experts within the framework of the project “Find a Forensic Expert” (JUST/2014/JACC/AG/E-JU/6963) co-funded by the European Union Justice Programme.
The aim of the project is to develop the Unified Register of Forensic Science Experts and the Unified Classification of Forensic Examinations accessible on-line initially covering the Baltic States - Latvia, Estonia and Lithuania. General information on forensic science and forensic science institutions will be prepared for the Ejustice portal ( as well. Duration of the project: 2 years.
Co-funded by the Justice Programme of the European Union.
