Swedish Biometrics Forum
The Swedish Biometrics Forum (SBF) is a new open platform dedicated to regular exchange of information and experience related to the field of Biometrics and Security. The target of the group is the interdisciplinary discussion between research, technology developers, data privacy experts, governmental agencies and operators of Biometric Systems. In the regular meetings new applications, latest research results and products are presented.
The next meeting will be scheduled for December 2018/January 2019.
The next meeting was held on 8 June 2018 (Friday) near Copenhagen Airport.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss research ideas for a proposal to EU Horizon 2020 in the area of identification and security. Eleven participants from different countries participated in the meeting, plus six more participants that could not attend but provided input prior to the meeting.
In the first session, discussions started around the topic of continuous biometrics. Several calls for proposal with deadline on August 2019 were discussed, and existing EU projects in biometrics were also reviewed in order to find synergies, and also to avoid replicating ideas. The participants (divided into two working groups) then had a brainstorming session to identify suitable project ideas. There was also a presentation from a representative of the Swedish Innovation Agency (Vinnova), which is also the EU National Contact Point of Sweden. An executive summary and report of discussions will be circulated among participants of the meeting, with a follow-up meeting proposed to take place after the summer.
The kick-off meeting was held on 26 January 2018 (Friday) at the University of Halmstad.
