TEKEVER Communication Systems at the RISE Final Conference

TEKEVER Communication Systems was invited to participate at the Final Roundtable of the conference signing the end of Project RISE, dedicated to the responsible research and innovation in biometrics.

TEKEVER Communication Systems contribution focused on the potential benefits (enhanced situational awareness in crises) and drawbacks (limitation to people’s rights) of many security and surveillance technologies, including the software systems used for victims’ tracking and location during emergencies, but also to monitor online content, often in a clearly invasive form. In this respect, TEKEVER Communication Systems is developing innovative research that will contribute to the delicate balance that is still to be reached.

Held at Brussels and hosted by the Centre for Science, Society and Citizenship, RISE’s final conference was attended by experts from twenty-two countries, representing industry, academia, policy makers, data protection authorities and independent think tanks.
