ABC4EU stands for Automated Border Control Gates for Europe. It is an EU wide project and involves a Consortium of 14 partners from 7 different countries. The aim is to make border control more flexible by enhancing the workflow and harmonizing the functionalities of Automated Border Control (ABC) gates, which are only one example of automation. Project started in January 2014 and will last for 4 years.

 

Conference Objective:

The objectives are two fold: Firstly to discuss the current Schengen borders’ opportunities, challenges and requirements from social, legal and technological perspectives.  Secondly to showcase the ABC4EU project solutions towards achieving a greater harmonisation of borders in the Schengen area with the integration of an Entry Exit System, and an overall harmonized border crossing experience for both EU and third country nationals.
