Human factors, and social, societal, and organisational aspects of border and external security SU-BES01-2018-2019-2020 (RIA Research and Innovation action – H2020)

What is it about?

Border and external security may depend on a variety of human factors, and social and societal issues including gender. The adoption of appropriate organizational measures and the deeper understanding of how novel technologies and social media impact border control are required. One main challenge is to manage the flow of travelers and goods arriving at our external borders, while at the same time tackling irregular migration and enhancing our internal security. Any novel technology or organizational measure will need to be accepted by the European citizens.

Proposals (which should take into account already existing tools) are invited to address related research and innovation issues, each under only one of the following sub-topics:

Expected Impact

  • Knowledge and evidence-based support to policy developments, with fitness for purpose validated by policy-makers and by practitioners and in cooperation with civil-society organisations in the Member States, the Associated Countries, and abroad where appropriate.
  • Methods to better manage the complexity (from reducing the incentives for irregular migration, to the analysis and sharing of best practices, and towards an effective application of common rules…) of the issues, with fitness for purpose validated by practitioners and civil-society organisations.
  • Advances through the cross-fertilisation of concepts resulting from the collision of different ways of thinking and of different approaches developed by various partners in the proposals.

In the same framework, iED has already implemented several innovative projects which included innovative practices.  If you are interested in applying for this call you could contact us and further discuss the available options.
