The Biometrics Institute is a not-for-profit membership organisation promoting the responsible use of biometrics. Over the last 10 years it has served its members and key stakeholders by providing a forum for sharing of knowledge and experiences with biometrics and offer information, education and training as required. It has been set up as a user group but facilitates the industry as a whole including suppliers and the research community. It has now opened a subsidiary in the UK to extend its network to Europe.
