Research should develop and systematically test and validate solutions to speed up and facilitate the border crossing experience (at land, sea and/or border crossing points for bothtravellers and staff of border authorities


– Validation of innovative solutions for border crossing facilitation systems at European level for near-seamless and improved border crossing experience for travellers

– Increased security and reliability of border checks

– Better organisation, flexibility and planning of border checks by European border authorities, including for handling peaks in cross-border traffic
