In the context of the Romanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the Ministry of Justice, in collaboration with the European Commission, organised the ”e-Justice – Challenges and Opportunities in the Digital Era” Conference on 20-21 May 2019 in Bucharest, Romania.

The conference addressed IT specialists, practitioners and decision-makers within the judicial systems and proposed to provide a forum to discuss the importance of using new technologies in the field of justice (eg artificial intelligence, Blockchain, process automation, etc.).

The focus of the conference was to encourage participants to reflect on the opportunities and challenges posed by the rapid pace of technological progress as well as on the philosophical and ethical aspects of the implementation of such instruments in the field of justice.

EVIDENCE2e-CODEX results were presented by Alexandra Tsvetkova, Director of LIBRe Foundation, in a session dedicated to the European technological framework on exchange of electronic evidence. Other panellists were representatives of the e-CODEX Platform and DG Justice and Consumers.

More information on the EVIDENCE2e-CODEX evidence exchange scenario is presented in the last project event's brief.
