Academic, Research & Innovation Sector Group

The academic research community represents an important part of the Biometrics Institute membership. This committee has been set up to create even closer engagement between the research community and the broader biometrics industry. It offers a fantastic opportunity to create greater visibility and opinions on current research. The aim of the group is to become an influential channel for relevant developments from the research community to be communicated to industry, government and the public.


  • It aims to foster leading-edge developments in the Biometrics area related to both applied and fundamental research into human identification.
  • It reviews the academic paper submissions for Biometrics Institute conferences. 
  • It facilitates collaborative research, development, evaluation work – with an emphasis on application/business scenarios

Group members will send their contributions for a Recommended Reading list that will be shared with the broader membership.
