On 6th of February 2020, the Directorate-General for Migration and Home Affairs of the European Commission and the European Border and Coast Guard Agency (Frontex) co-signed dedicated Terms of Reference, with the aim to improve the collaboration on research and innovation relevant for EU border security.
This action is crucial to ensure that research funded by the EU on the security and management of external borders provides state of the art technologies and solutions to the European and Member States’ border and coast guards.
Furthermore, the collaboration with Frontex will allow the Commission to better plan investments on research and innovation in this area, and ensure that research projects obtain results that are in line with the needs identified by the European Border and Coast Guard community.
