The Workshop, together with the study of the most sophisticated investigation techniques adopted in Europe, will allow the gathering of new and important professional information that can be applied in the approach of new operational cases.

In addition, special emphasis will be placed on the exchange of knowledge on the Investigation and Analysis of Money Laundering Threats Associated with Virtual Assets and Virtual Asset Service Providers, as this topic represents a current threat in modern society that must be addressed with the necessary expertise.

Finally, the methodology of the selected speakers, all of whom have research experience in the field, will allow those who are comparing these topics for the first time to acquire the necessary information to better understand the international contexts and, for those who are more advanced, it will be an opportunity to enrich their cultural and professional background.
