Technology Foresight on Biometrics: closure of the project

2021-10-22

In January, Frontex kicked off the Technology Foresight on Biometrics for the Future of Travel, a challenging research study aimed to provide an overview of the foreseen evolution of key biometric technologies relevant for border check systems, in the short- (2022-2027), medium- (2028-2033), and long-term (2034-2040) perspectives. The project ended, after 8 months of intense activities, on 20 September with the Final Project Meeting where, in a videoconference, the contractor presented the results of the study to Frontex and the same group of experts consulted during the participatory events, placing special emphasis on the TF methodology adopted and the findings of the TF exercise.

Each of the phases of this complex study came with its own set of insights meant to support the EBCG community in deciding about the adoption of novel technological solutions and exploiting new opportunities while avoiding or mitigating associated risks. A brief description of the results generated by the project can be found in the attached last newsletter, while all the details of the project outcomes will appear in the research study report that will be published in 2022.
