NEW ONLINE PLATFORM FOR INTELLIGENCE ANALYSIS
On 3 October 2019, Europol’s Executive Director, Catherine De Bolle launched CONAN (Connecting Analysts), the new platform for intelligence analysis. The platform was launched in the margins of the European Police Chiefs Convention, the most significant law enforcement convention in the EU. Through the secure, web-based CONAN platform, criminal analysts from EU Member States, third partner countries and relevant partner agencies will be able to elaborate and share guidelines, methodologies, training materials, analytical tools and additional resources.
CONAN will feature two sections on operational and strategic analysis where law enforcement experts from Member States and beyond can exchange their expertise, interact with each other and work towards improving intelligence analysis. A dedicated sub-platform will be devoted to facilitating knowledge-sharing solely among EU law enforcement professionals. In the near future, a sub-platform will also allow EU Member State law enforcement analysts to develop and co-create analytical tools.
