PROTECT has the following high-level objectives:

  • To research current and emerging biometric technologies and methods for promising alternative technologies to those mandated by ICAO in order to break the constraints presented by those modalities
  • To prototype concepts developed as a result of PROTECT research in a safe and controlled environment but using real locations with live subjects – to prove their security, accessibility and acceptability
  • To offer the research, specifications and experience from the prototypes to European border and law-enforcement agencies, to European technology suppliers, having first established the legal and social propriety of such initiatives.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement no. 700259.
