NFSTC works with several noted organizations and universities to evaluate emerging and mature technologies to determine whether these tools can be effectively applied in forensic investigations. Technology transition activities for NFSTC include technology evaluations, workshops to train users on new technology, and technology demonstrations at large training venues.
The following technology transition workshops are available online, including workshop agendas, online video of the presentations and the presentation files themselves.
