Frontex, the European Border and Coast Guard Agency, will hold its second International Conference on Biometrics for Borders on December 1-3 2020. Throughout the event an Industry Exhibition with a focus on biometrics technology for the Entry Exit System (EES) will be open for participation. Due to the current circumstances, including safety measures in place and travel restrictions, the event will be held online.
The industry exhibition on EES equipment will give industry the opportunity to share the latest technological developments and innovative solutions related to biometrics, focused on practical implementations of the EES at the European Union’s external borders. Frontex wants to showcase to the end user community of Member States’ border authorities and Frontex experts industry products and services through online short presentation videos, technical papers, Q&A sessions and live discussions.
Companies interested in presenting an innovative solution are encouraged to sign up to participate via the dedicated expression of interest form. Please note that the deadline for applications is Tuesday, October 20, noon Central European Time. Applicants will be asked to provide a brief description of their company and the technological innovation they wish to present. Places are limited and participation to the conference is by invitation only as submissions will undergo an assessment process, which will be based on the novelty and potential impact of the products and/or services for the border guard community. Frontex will inform all the interested companies of the outcome of the selection.
Frontex will share the gathered information about all the offered innovations relevant to biometrics technology for the EES with its community of experts, the European Border and Coast Guard.
