The first element of the agreement will be the creation of a Digital crime scene modelling laboratory at TUL, equipped with specialized equipment. The Voivodeship will donate 282 thousand PLN for this purpose. The university own contribution will amount to 94 thousand zlotys.
Rector Prof. Krzysztof Jóźwik said:
The creation of the laboratory is the most important step in the project to create a provincial competence centre for Computer Forensics and Cyber security at Lodz University of Technology. We are very well prepared for this, for many years we have been cooperating with the Voivodeship Police Headquarters in this area. We count on the development of this project by strengthening cooperation with the Marshal's Office and the Police, which will certainly contribute to improving cyberspace security of the residents of the Łódź Voivodeship.
The cooperation agreement was signed by the rector Prof. Krzysztof Jóźwik and the Marshal of the Łódź Voivodeship Grzegorz Schreiber.
Prof. Andrzej Romanowski, the Vice-Rector for Education and IT specialist at TUL, explained:
The specialized laboratory will use 3D interactive acquisition technologies to create crime scene models. Modelling artefacts and interaction with the user, as well as augmented and virtual reality techniques, will allow for an in-depth analysis of the obtained data regarding digital activity also from cyberspace.
The TUL laboratory will also provide an information processing system and conduct research on the design of optimized tools for the work of police.
