The TRESSPASS consortium, together with the hosting partner “National University of Ireland Maynooth”, will convene for its End User Workshop in Dublin, Ireland on December 11th, 2018 at the Spencer Hotel, aiming to bring together end users with representatives from European border authorities and stakeholders with the purpose of presenting and validating the preliminary findings of the TRESSPASS project research. The workshop will provide participants an opportunity to be part of an enthusiastic and creative group of innovators working on the EU’s vision for European integrated and smart border management and to exchange views and experiences with colleagues from other countries' border authorities.

The workshop objective is to validate concepts of operations, which are representations of how the proposed systems will work including the key actors, tools and resources. Through the sessions, end user organizations from within and outside the TRESSPASS consortium, will provide valuable and constructive feedback on the proposed models and in turn help TRESSPASS revise and develop more operationally suited prototypes and systems. The workshop will conclude with discussions focusing on consolidating a preliminary set of design requirements for current and future EU border management identified during the TRESSPASS project.

The TRESSPASS project is a 42 month H2020 Innovation Action aiming to modernize the way security checks at BCPs are held out. Pioneering in the area of border management by including air, maritime and land BCPs and travel routes that combine the 3 different modalities, TRESSPASS imports the idea 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 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.
