National Environmental Crime Conference
National Environmental Crime Conference 2013
27th November 2013, 30 Euston Square, London "Perspectives on the use of technology for preventing environmental crime"
Environmental crime and eco-security matter - and are increasingly on the agendas of national and local government departments. Existing and new threats are a growing problem that are having a direct impact on the global environment and human wellbeing. This fourth UK National Environmental Crime Conference is an international platform bringing together industry and academic expertise with practitioners and policymakers to discuss a range of current and future problems such as wildlife crime, industrial pollution and illegal waste disposal.
On the day you can look forward to:
• keynote talks
• a panel discussion
• academic posters
• a charity fundraising event
• live demonstrations of technologies that could be used to detect and prevent environmental crime.
The conference is organised by University College London’s Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science in partnership with the Electronics, Sensors, Photonics Knowledge Transfer Network (ESP-KTN).

Registration for the 2013 NECC costs £25 (£15 for students), but approx. 80% of this price will be donated to one or more of our participating charities, who work on various projects to prevent environmental crimes and its harms to people and the environment.
Not only will you be donating to a good cause, this will also help to raise awareness of environmental crime, get people talking about the problem and, hopefully, generate new ideas and research projects.
