The main objective of this procurement, which requires proven high-level expertise, is the delivery of a research study with a focus on the future of biometrics for implementation in border control systems that may, in a short (1-5 years), medium (5-10 years) and long term (10+ years) perspective, benefit the work of the Agency and the European Border and Coast Guard (EBCG) community.
