EAB-RPC, which is jointly organized by the European Association for Biometrics (EAB), the Joint Research Center (DG-JRC) of the European Commission, and Fraunhofer IGD and a number of EU projects, including PROTECT, will present research results and discuss the benefits of the research for the European society. This conference will present updates of projects introduced in the first and second conference. New projects in the fields of border control (i.e. PROTECT), speaker identification, template protection and more will be presented. Experts from the biometric community will report about their results.

Publicly-funded research projects need to stay close to the practical problems they seek to solve and so the PROTECT project team held a second Stakeholder Group workshop on 5th July at the University of Reading. Professor James Ferryman, who coordinates PROTECT, welcomed some 30 or so participants from business, government and the project team itself.
It is rare that innovation springs from a single talented individual or group. Often several teams are working on the same idea and this can be competitive or supportive, depending on how you look at it. So it is with the development of a contactless, walk/drive-through biometric border control system using ePassports and mobile devices.

The World Border Security Congress is a high level 3 day event that will discuss and debate current and future policies, implementation issues and challenges as well as new and developing technologies that contribute towards safe and secure border and migration management.
On the 7th and 8th February the PROTECT consortium visited two Polish land border crossing points at Dorohusk and Terespol. The visit began with a meeting the Nadbużański Unit of the Polish Border Guard in Chelm. During this meeting, representatives of PBG presented an overview of the land borders between Poland and Ukraine Poland and Belarus. The PROTECT partners presented an overview of the PROTECT vision and objectives.
Prof. James Ferryman, PROTECT coordinator, will present the PROTECT project at the Home Office Science and Engineering Conference (HOSEC) conference to be held at the Royal Society, London, on 28th February 2017.
The event, which addresses identity assurance today and tomorrow, will include views from government, future identity technology innovations and market trends from industry, academic views on the virtualisation of identities, virtual identity in practice, and identities at the border.
