"The new methodologies and protocols of forensic identification by craniofacial superimposition (MEPROCS) project aims to propose a common EU framework to allow the extensive application of the CS technique in practical forensic identification scenarios commonly tackled by the European scientific police units. This framework will include: i) the implementation of an existing semi-automatic method to assist the forensic experts in the application of the CS technique, resulting in a simple, quick, and systematic approach; ii) the definition of standard protocols at European level, leading to the objective application of the CS technique in different forensic identification scenarios; and iii) the specification of a forensic science methodology to provide an objective evaluation of the forensic identification results achieved by CS, avoiding particular assumptions that could bias the process. Hence, the project clearly promotes the validation and exchange of CS protocols and methodologies among different organisations. The particular objectives of this project concern supporting the development of a trustable CS methodological framework by fulfilling requirements covering educational, technical, economic, social, and security aspects."
