General Industry Days: all innovation for borders is welcome


Would you like to showcase your novel solutions and technologies that can support law enforcement activities for border management? Do you want to contribute to ensuring safer EU borders?  Frontex Online I-Days are the great opportunity to engage with the European Border and Coast Guard Community. Join us on Webex, on 10 and 11 April 2024.

By organising the General Industry Days, Frontex wishes to create a forum for technology providers to present how their innovative solutions can help to address the challenges faced by the European Border and Coast Guard community and ensure security at the external EU borders.

We are looking for innovations and solutions for the future in the following fields:

  • Solutions integrating advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, biometric identification, and tracking systems;
  • Data integration solutions on command platforms;
  • Systems that can operate autonomously, ensuring durability and continuity of supervision, and not requiring constant human presence;
  • Solutions integrating artificial intelligence with robotics.

What’s in it for you?

  • Share your latest technological developments and the state-of-the-art solutions by delivering a short presentation;
  • Register your innovative solutions on an interactive digital exhibition platform;
  • Connect with the European Border and Coast Guard community composed of Frontex experts and Member States’ border guard authorities.

How to participate?

If you are interested in attending the General Industry Days, please express your interest by 22 March 2024 by filling in an online registration form with the description of the solution you wish to present. Technological solutions must respect the legal limitations resulting from the data protection rules and human rights provisions. After the submissions deadline, Frontex will select up to sixteen technological solutions. All submissions will be evaluated internally, ensuring alignment with the needs of the European Border and Coast Guard community while guaranteeing the fair and transparent treatment of all participants. The selection is based on the following criteria: effectiveness, efficiency, innovation and relevance for the European Border and Coast Guard community. All relevant innovative solutions will be given the opportunity to register on Frontex’s interactive digital exhibition platform.
