A Platform for Monitoring and Prediction of Social Impact and Acceptability of Modern Border Control Technology

Project description

Smart border control technologies for the EU

The EU-funded METICOS project aims to create an up-to-date acceptance classification scheme as well as a societal and ethical impact dashboard of border control technologies, to empower three major sub-divisions of the wider border control sector: travellers, border control authorities and service providers. METICOS will mainly focus on established models and theories, such as the Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), the Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology (UTAUT) and Innovation Diffusion Theory. In addition, performance and credibility expectations of smart border technologies from travellers, border management and law enforcement agencies will be explored in detail. As such, METICOS aims to create a holistic solution to address challenges for border management, both as regards societal acceptance and efficiency. The METICOS toolkit will be validated in two application scenarios and in five different countries.
