Months of collaboration will pay off from 18 to 20 September 2023, during the 10th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference proudly co-organised by the European Association for Biometrics (EAB), the European Commission's DG HOME F2 Unit and eu-LISA's Research and Development team. The conference, a yearly event, offers a dissemination platform for EU-funded project results in the fields of security, border management and ID management.
The basis for this collaboration is offset in the commitment and efforts of the research function within eu-LISA to engage with a broader array of external stakeholders and to actively contribute to the Commission's Horizon Europe research programme, such as the EU Security Research Programme managed by DG HOME.
Over the past nine years, the conference has established itself as a common forum in Europe, where policy makers, academia, industry, Member States and law-enforcement bodies can share their point of views and update themselves on the latest scientific developments related to biometric recognition technology.
eu-LISA's Research and Development team have put together a compelling programme for the event and will chair several sessions including the opening and closing ones. In addition, Highlighting the Agency's commitment to science, innovation and research, eu-LISA's Executive Director, Agnes Diallo, will deliver the event's opening keynote speech on 18 September 2023. Topics expected to be covered include the key factors of biometric technology that have an impact on eu-LISA's Core Business Systems and on the overall interoperability framework.
Participants will be able to interact with new prototypes in dedicated demo sessions and also discuss the latest trends and challenges brought by biometric technology with experts from eu-LISA, Europol, Frontex and the European Commission, as well as with colleagues from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the US National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
The conference will take place in Darmstadt, Germany.
