ABC Gates for Europehttp://abc4eu.com/1.1.2014 0:00:0031.3.2018 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningPeople travel and migrate. International movement is on the rise and so are the numbers of border crossings each year. In 2011 alone, there were over 700 million Schengen border crossings, and the estimate is that there will be an 80% increase by 2030. Thus, border crossings should be made as smooth and rapid as possible for everyday travelling without compromising security. ABC4EU (Automated Border Control Gates for Europe) is a 4-year, EU Framework Programme 7 (FP7) Project that began in January 2014. At the moment the Automated Border Control Systems can be used by passengers with EU and Schengen ePassport recognizable by the microchip symbol. In the future, together with complementary legislation, also non-Schengen passengers will be able to use the ABC gate. The ABC gate compares the biometric data (e.g. facial image or fingerprints, etc.) from the passenger’s travel document onto the real-life equivalent. It also verifies the validity and reliability of the travel document. If the match is high enough, the passenger is let through from the gate. The aim of ABC4EU is to make border checks more flexible and user-friendly for passengers by harmonising the functionalities of border check automation. Greater harmonisation should create a better passenger experience and encourage people to use ABC gates at border crossing points. ABC gates facilitate more fluent travelling by shortening queuing time. Harmonisation should affect many functionalities, biometrics, gate design and the border check process itself. One of the main objectives of the project is to update and integrate current ABC systems and extend their use to future ePassports. Simultaneously, states can fight cross-border crime and illegal migration more efficiently, and provide a higher level of internal security. The system will also benefit different stakeholders, such as transport operators, as the increasing flow of travellers will be handled in an efficient way.Laura Tarkkanen Project Manager Laurea University of Applied Sciences +358 40 669 2611 laura.tarkkanen@laurea.fi FP7 Cooperation177

EUCISE2020 - European test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspectivewww.eucise.eu1.12.2014 0:00:0031.8.2018 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningEUCISE2020 - European test bed for the maritime Common Information Sharing Environment in the 2020 perspective (Combination of Collaborative Project and Coordination and Support Action: Pre-Operational Validation (POV), funded by European Commission FP7 framework programme) EUCISE2020 is a Security Research project of the European Seventh Framework Program; it aims at achieving the pre-operational Information Sharing between the maritime authorities of the European States. EUCISE2020 is an important milestone in the roadmap for implementation of the European CISE - Common Information Sharing Environment. CISE supports the development of the Blue Economy of the European Union, is a key innovation of the European maritime governance, is an element of the European Digital Agenda, and, finally, is a pillar of the European Action Plan for the European Maritime Security Strategy. The European Union is strongly committed at implementing the Integrated Maritime Policy which supports improved efficiency of the Maritime Situational Awareness by the competent authorities, through networking and interoperability of maritime surveillance systems in Europe (ref. COM (2009) 538, and COM (2010) 584 relating to the implementation of a Common Information Sharing Environment (CISE)). EU CISE 2020 aims to be a significant step forward along the accomplishment of the European roadmap for CISE (Common Information Sharing Environment); the project attains the widest possible experimental environment of innovative and collaborative processes between European maritime institutions. EU CISE 2020 takes as reference a broad spectrum of factors in the field of European Integrated Maritime Surveillance, arising from the European legal framework, as well as from studies, pilot and R&D projects accomplished in the last three years. The overall objective of EUCISE2020 is to progress towards establishing a forward operating vision of CISE more stable and innovative, functionally and geographically larger, and more shared by different communities of European public and private stakeholders; CISE will support further cross-border and cross-sector operational cooperation between public authorities -including EU Agencies- in the execution of the defined maritime functionalities, with a focus on information sharing across sea-basins. The EU CISE2020 Consortium includes: 39 full partners organisations from 14 European Member States or EEA States (Bulgaria, Cyprus, Germany, Denmark, Greece, Spain, Finland, France, Italy, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden, UK), including operational stakeholders, R&D institutions and technical bodies involved in all EU relevant maritime basins and in all CISE sectorial communities. 25 associated / observer partners organisation including international organisations and maritime authorities from other European MS.

The project aims to transform the administration-centred model of designing public digital services into a new kind of open innovation process which enables the participation of citizens, companies, educational institutions and public actors. The project aims to make extensive use of service design methods, which enable different actors to participate together in defining and developing services as well as creating business. In addition, the project endeavours to harness unprocessed information (open data) that has been accumulated by public administration, organisations, companies and private citizens into new service innovations co-created by various actors. Another objective is to create an innovation platform for making use of open data, and tools and business models that facilitate co-creation.Project Manager | sami.kauppinen@laurea.fi | +358 40 036 7567 CARD Palvelumuotoilu ja tulevaisuuden innovatiiviset liiketoimintamallitH2020 Societal Challenges414

Boosting innovative Entrepreneurial Ecosystem in Regions for young entrepreneurs1.4.2016 0:00:0031.3.2020 0:00:00International RDI3 RunningComposed of EER (European Entrepreneurial Region) and non-EER regions, the project Boost EER addresses the challenges regional authorities face in optimizing structural funds to support young entrepreneurs in the regions due to 1) Lack of awareness or entrepreneurial competence both for local and regional authorities (LRAs) and the higher education institution (HEIs); 2) Fragmented actions of actors either operating in silos or duplication of efforts, 3) Uneven development and resources between outlying and centre areas of a region and 4) Limited funding provision or at risk of ineffective management of funds. Boost EER aims to define paths and solution for partner regions enabling HEIs and the other Quadruple Helix actors to be a part of thriving entrepreneurship ecosystem supporting young entrepreneurship through improving 11 ESIF programmes in 10 diverse regions from FI, DK, UK, IE, ES, IT, DE, FR, PL and RO. In the 2 years of interregional learning and 2 years of monitoring, Boost EER taps the pool of EER expertise and transfers the best practices through peer-learning, guided workshops and bottom-up approach empowering the LRAs, HEIs, business and young entrepreneurs to take ownership of the development and implementation of 10 action plans. Boost EER also constantly involves non-partner regions (in particular less-developed regions) to validate the transferability of the best practices for European upscale. Each endorsed action plan is envisaged to improve the addressed ESIFs through: project pipelines for best practise importing (entrepreneurial university and startup support), adaption of multi- level governance, multi-funding or/and a evaluation tool which ultimately lead to growth and more jobs. Specific objective: 1. To bench learn how HEIs transform themselves into Entrepreneurial universities to integrate education, RDI and entrepreneurship to foster young entrepreneurship and, 2. how regions can seize the active role entrepreneurial university contributes to the entrepreneurial discovery of the region.

URAREITTI - korkeasti koulutetun maahan muuttaneen osaamisen tunnistamisen ja tunnustamisen viitekehys1.10.2015 0:00:0030.9.2018 0:00:00Kansallinen TKI3 RunningThe Career Path - A framework in recognition of prior learning and competencies among highly educated people with an immigrant background Challenges related to identification and recognition of competences, to career path and to transfer of credits make it difficult for highly educated immigrants to embark on career routes, obtain employment and have education. Currently, there are no systematic descriptions or common policies related to how highly educated immigrants could move to various career routes. The project aims to strengthen the accessibility of education and business world for those immigrants and support their inclusion and participation in Finnish society. The undertaking seeks solutions to smoothen up their career routes and, through that, to minimise education overlaps, to provide employment quickly and to orientate them towards further studies. Also full utilisation of competences is aimed at by creating coherent and fully accessible national practices. The main objective of the project is to produce, within the context of technological universities, a framework for the estimation and contextualisation of highly educated immigrants, a framework that can be made use of in the evaluation processes for competences and module planning in further and continuing training. In addition to paying attention to professional and language skills, the framework also takes into account the development of cultural and professional identity in a foreign work culture, both in the case of further and continuing training. The resulting "Competence scale for the field of health care" will be a model with operational principles for identification and recognition of competences possessed by highly educated people with immigrant background. The project evaluates how the ways implemented in educational organisations to identify competences correspond to the recommendations and principles created for the identification of competence. In addition, evaluation of equivalence among health sector degrees and field-specific competence mapping are developed in the project by collaboratively creating field-specific principles for credit transfer of competences otherwise acquired. These principles include the necessary field-specific, module-based further education recommendations. The project also builds training programs on evaluation practices for those who teach people with immigrant background. As its second outcome, the project will produce "Competence paths" for the fields of technology, health care and business as well as for professional teacher education, which also functions as a model that can be extensively utilised in other fields of education and operational environments (e.g., Open UAS, continuing education, preparatory studies). The model creates the general principles for identification and possible recognition of competence and, related to that, it creates module combinations taking into account individual needs. The focus is on professional studies as further studies, on supplementary studies for occupational language, on work culture and field-specific networking as well as building professional identity and self-empowerment from the viewpoint of employment or further studies. The third outcome and objective of the project is a uniform language education model and a continuum of language learning. Language education is initially developed in the region of Southern and Western Finland. In the future, the objective of the language education model is to secure a possibility for immigrants to also develop their language skills elsewhere regardless of changes in regional or national language education policy. In any case, there is a need for language education, and the objective of the language education model is in any case to provide an opportunity for long-term development of language skills. The project aims at developing flexible education models easily adapting to possible changes which universities of ESR 2014-2020533
