    Border and Security Management Roundtable 2018

    Wednesday 20th June 2018, Brussels, Belgium

Overview:

Freedom of movement in the EU is the cornerstone of Union citizenship. The Schengen Agreement has enabled an entire continent to function as a single country for international travel purposes, with a common visa policy.

The crisis in Syria and the recent spate of terrorist attacks is changing the socio-political landscape within the EU, and continued investment in research and innovation in Europe’s security industry is ever essential for developing effective political and technological solutions in tackling the issue of security and border management.

This Roundtable meeting brings together EU policy makers, border security industry professionals, NGOs, academic experts and other key stakeholders to examine the ongoing challenges in managing border related challenges more effectively and exploring practical solutions in order to reach an EU-wide consensus and implement a forward action plan. 

Focus:
  • Current Policy and Strategy Framework
  • Latest policy developments of the Information Systems for Border Management
  • Interoperability of EU information systems
  • Fundamental rights to privacy and protection of personal data
  • Data security risks and cyber threats
  • Biometrics technologies
  • EU security industry research funding
  • Public private partnership
  • Security research after Horizon 2020
Format of the day:

This event is very restricted (only 30 seats are available) and interactive. All participants will have the opportunity to offer their perspective and make contributions throughout the day.

The Roundtable will also provide hours of networking time, including coffee breaks and lunch to ensure participants have the maximum possible time to establish and strengthen relationships, whilst exchanging ideas. 

Border & Security Report:
