To further widen our communication with potential end-users, on 7 June the PROTECT project presented to 25 Schengen border agencies at an event hosted by Frontex in Sofia, Bulgaria. The workshop was to initiate work on harmonized introduction of the EU Entry-Exit System and PROTECT was there to show what the future might look like when eligible third-country nationals (known as TCNs) can cross EU external borders using smartphones and kiosks to send their biographic and biometric identity data in advance to border control agencies. Further liaison with these end users will follow as we prepare for the practical demonstrations of the PROTECT concept.
Privacy and data protection issues related to the use of multimodal biometrics 'on-the-move' at border-crossings were discussed during CPDP conference which took place on 24-26 January in Brussels.

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.
