2 Horizon 2020 partner searchers in the fields of ‘Security’ and ‘Science with and for Society’

Kindly find here 2 Horizon 2020 partner searchers in the fields of ‘Security’ and ‘Science with and for Society’.

Please, find hereafter the details of a Spanish end-user interested in getting involved in a proposal under SEC-18-BES-2017, as a practitioner: 

General Directorate of Information Technology and Communications dependent from the Spanish State Secretary for Security, and the Spanish Ministry of Interior, is responsible among other duties, for standardization and homologation of information and communication systems, codification and data structures within security. It includes control systems, applying alien law and also liaising with pan-European and other supranational bodies, such as Frontex, covering Border Crossing Points in Spain (air borders, sea borders and land borders, including the enclaves of Ceuta and Melilla). 

Given the geo-strategic position of Spain, both as one of the gates to/from Northern Africa, and as a hub for Latin America, along with the increasing migration pressure; General Directorate of Information Technology and Communications believes that the rationalization of Border Control, in terms of cost-containment, facilitation and security, lies in the application of automated and assisted border control tools, among which ABC gates are to play a substantial role. Moreover, the Spanish ABC solution combines facial and fingerprint biometrics (for Spanish eID card and for 2nd generation passports). At the E.U. level, the General Directorate of Information Technology and Communications works closely with Frontex in these matters, and has been a member of the Frontex working group of Best Practices on ABC since its inception, actively contributing to its documents and publications.
