BORDERS-Frontex Workshop 2012

Location: 
Appeldoorn, The Netherlands
September 11, 2012 - September 13, 2012

On September 13-14, 2012, BORDERS is conducting a workshop in coordination with Frontex in the Netherlands. This is the third consecutive workshop BORDERS has conducted with Frontex—the European Union (EU) agency reasonable for operational cooperation and management across European member state borders. Similar to previous workshops, this workshop will bring together border guards across all EU member states, to consider and share their operational challenges and needs, best practices, and credibility assessment techniques. The three-day workshop will engage participants through discussion, activities, and a simulated screening scenario designed to demonstrate new technologies, including the AVATAR, all while providing participants a unique opportunity to reflect and learn how they make decisions, both with and without technological aid.
