The Programme


Part of the Knowledge team, the Biometric Risk Modelling chapter focuses on biometric risks. Chapter core members goals are to contribute to key projects, train, share knowledge and know-how with chapter members, promote knowledge both internally and externally, and finally, develop knowledge via high level internships and academic partnerships.
