Training network to focus on ESR in mobile biometrics

A new EU-funded training network, AMBER (enhAnced Mobile BiomEtRics), has detailed its plans to address current issues related to biometric solutions on mobile devices in new projects.

The network will comprise ten integrated Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) early stage researcher (ESR) projects across five EU universities, along with the support of seven industrial partners.

In a statement, AMBER said the network’s aim would be to “collate Europe-wide complementary academic and industrial expertise and to train and equip the next generation of researchers to investigate and develop practical solutions as well as theoretical understanding of related issues to ensure secure, ubiquitous and efficient authentication whilst protecting the privacy of citizens.”

AMBER is now recruiting to several PhD/ESR positions at University of Kent, UK; Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Italy; Politechnika Warszawska, Poland; Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg, Germany; and Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain.

Launched on 1 January, the network will run through until 31 December 2020.

Recruitment for AMBER ESR is now open.
