|Enhancing the workflow and functionalities of Automated Border Control (ABC) gates - Integration Project||http://abc4eu.com/||1.1.2014 0:00:00||31.12.2017 0:00:00||International RDI||3 Running||People 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

The purpose of SOCCES is to develop an assessment framework and related tools as well as methods for measuring these two competences in different educational environments. The developed framework will be piloted and based on the experiences gained through the pilots, the assessment methods and tools will be finalized and related guidelines will be edited for the teachers and students.
The development of the framework will provide the first step to the (modular) European assessment and certification system, “EuroComPass”. A development of a commonly used framework will enable practitioners and accrediting bodies to measure and accordingly sustain and enhance the quality of transversal skills in education.||The main anticipated outputs include:
1. A baseline analysis on existing teaching practices and development needs in the form of an open source published report;
2. A set of key requirements for teaching to enable both learners’ development of the targeted competences and professional skills but also the related teachers’ skills and available tools;
3. A framework and systematic evaluation methodology for the assessment of the targeted transversal skills;
4. A re-usable and adaptable virtually enabled real-life problem-based assessment module for the defined transversal competences that teachers and learners can use in different curriculum settings;
5. A common set of guidelines and recommendations that teachers can use to develop or evaluate learning content or teacher training programs;
6. Instructions and toolkit for the teachers on the assessment method; dissemination events and activities.

|MORFEUS||1.1.2015 0:00:00||30.6.2017 0:00:00||Kansallinen TKI||3 Running||MORFEUS - Future value creation in well-being service networks
The joint multidisciplinary project of Laurea University of Applied Sciences and Aalto University, MORFEUS (01/2015–06/2017) aims to study and develop wellbeing services’ multi-actor ecosystems. The project employs an action research approach and works through service design, information modeling and future studies focusing also on contracting practices. In the project, actors of the ecosystem i.e. companies, public and third sector organizations offering wellbeing services are mapped and the relations between them explored – especially in mental health, child protection and substance abuse related services. The project is funded by Tekes, the Finnish Funding Agency for Innovation, and 15 partner organizations from private, public, and third sector.
The project is citizen-led by nature, and the well-being service ecosystem is studied and developed by looking into the collection of services that a case example family is using. The research project consists of five intensive co-development cycles in which research partners and other stakeholders closely participate. The research partners comprehensively represent well-being service actors in Uusimaa region from the municipality sector, the producers of well-being services, and the producers of digital tools and consulting services.
The main research problem of the project is: ‘How can cross-organizational collaboration be facilitated when developing customer-centered well-being service ecosystems?’
The project develops an information modeling framework suitable for various service domains. All information required for the procurement and production of a service will be collected into the information model. The information modelling clarifies roles, relations and information needs of the actors and strives to enable the development, production and procurement of more (cost-)effective and client-oriented services in the future. Based on the information modeling to be produced in the project, it will be possible to develop novel digital tools that support the development and improved functioning of the well-being service ecosystem.
