Investigative capacity is scarce. On a daily basis, the organization has to consider whether extra efforts should be made to try to solve new cases or to keep investigating old or cold cases. The impact of unsolved cases on society is considerable. There is a great deal of willingness on the part of citizens and the business community to contribute to solving these crimes. However, the organization encounters two problems when sharing investigation data: • The privacy of suspects and witnesses must be taken into account. • Certain knowledge of the facts must remain secret to prevent harming the investigations.

The Dutch organization is open to different types of partnerships such as a research cooperation agreement or a technical cooperation agreement.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
