It all began at the fire academy Revinge, Sweden, in 2019, between the Danish National Police (NKC) and the Leverhulme Research Centre for Forensic Science at the University of Dundee in Scotland. We undertook a pilot study to explore the use of Virtual Reality as a tool. The scenes that we captured enabled us to build a robust and comprehensive on-line training experience for European fire investigators in 2020 when in person training was not possible. In total, 78 participants from 24 nations, worked through 6 case studies submitting 115 reports.
