Understanding the Technology

In February 2013, the European Commission launched the EU Smart Border Package, with the intention "to simplify life for frequent third country travelers at the EU's external borders, enhance EU security and contribute to better monitoring of border-crossings". Focusing on this package and on specific proposals to develop an EU Entry-Exit System and the Registered Traveler Program, the 2013 Smart Borders conference provided an opportunity to hear from leading policymakers and decision makers directly involved in its formulation and implementation.

Hear from speakers at the smart borders conference including Krum Garkov, Executive Director, EU Agency for large-scale IT systems (EU-LISA), providing their views on the technology driving the Smart Borders program.
