Side Events

During the conference day a number of side events are arranged alongside the main conference program. Our side events offer a closer look into the topics covered at the main program.

Side events provide VSE Members and partners with the opportunity to launch tech initiatives and tools, promote projects or approaches, and products or services. They are also the perfect occasion to have Q&A discussions on specific topics.

  1. Software And Hardware For The Benefit Of Victim Support Services
  2. Self-Help Technologies For Victims Of Crime
  3. Providing Information To Victims Of Crime In The Web
