FRA kicks off Entry/Exit System project

On 11 January, FRA held the inception meeting for a new project on the Entry/Exit System (EES) with partners from its research network, FRANET.

The EES is the EU’s new large-scale IT system registering travellers entering the EU for a short stay. The system is supposed to become operational at the end of 2024.

FRA’s project will collect data from Member States on fundamental rights challenges in implementing the system. It aims at supporting Member States and EU institutions in setting up the system in a fundamental rights-compliant manner.
