The „Innovation Laboratory“ is to build on existing departments at Europol. Its areas of responsibility include the police handling of anonymisation and encryption on the Internet and Darknet. Europol has already set up a „decryption platform“ for this purpose, which is being funded by the EU Commission with 5 million euros. Europol is researching the use of quantum computers that could be used for artificial intelligence applications within the framework of the „Innovation Laboratory“.
The „Innovation Laboratory“ will also be responsible for the search for methods for intercepting the 5G mobile radio networks, which are by default interception-proof. Europol has already organised several „expert meetings“ on this subject.
