The works also includes designing a threat-and-risk assessment. The project consortium is expecting experts from government institutions, academia, research institutions and international organisations from all EU member states,as well as the United States and Australia.

The WATER CRIMES Project consortium will also hold its mid-term meeting to discuss stages of progress and various points of the ongoing project activities.

A detailed programme of the workshop can be found in the draft agenda.

The European Workshop on Water Crimes was organised within the framework of the WATER CRIMES project, which started in January 2016 and is co-funded by the Internal Security Fund of the European Union. The primary aims of the project are to provide the first strategic analysis of crimes against water resources in Europe and to advance the knowledge in this field.
