Acknowledgments

We would like to thank our partners for their generous support of the I-CORE Programme.

I-CORE is a long-term programme to transform the technology used in international policing. Significant and ongoing investment is required to make sure that police around the world can access the best possible criminal data – faster, smarter, everywhere – and close down gaps in global security.

The success of the programme depends on the financial support of our partners. We are pleased to recognize the following contribution that will help bring us closer to our mission of making the world a safer place.

We are grateful to the Federal Criminal Police Office of Germany (Bundeskriminalamt), and the German Ministry of Interior (Bundesministerium des Innern, für Bau und Heimat) as the founding partners of I-CORE, for their contribution of EUR 5 million over three years.
