New collaboration with TRESSPASS H2020 project

METICOS H2020 Project is pleased to announce the collaboration that has been established between METICOS and TRESSPASS.


TRESSPASS is a European research project in the H2020 framework and Border and External Security thematic area, receiving EU funding under GA 787120. The overall scope of TRESSPASS is to modernize the way the security checks at border crossing points (BCPs) are held out at land, air and sea. TRESSPASS imports the concept of “risk-based” security checks and proposes an analytic framework for modelling risk as well as a systematic approach of quantifying risk, based on a set of indicators ranging from real-time behaviour analytics to intelligent information extraction and sharing that can accurately be measured across all four tiers of the EU Integrated Border Management: (1) measures undertaken in, or jointly with third countries or service providers; (2) cooperation with neighbouring countries; (3) border control and counter-smuggling measures, and (4) control measures within the area of free movement.

METICOS took the initiative to create the synergy on exchanging methodologies, practices and services with other EU-funded projects and initiatives funded under the same programme/topic: SU-BES01-2018-2019-2020 – Human factors, and social, societal, and organizational aspects of border and external security. TRESSPASS is the very first member of this Synergy. We strongly believe that these synergies enhance the sustainability impact of project members and add value to Dissemination and Communication activities.
