According to the Biometrics Institute, the meeting will be an opportunity to hear about its proposed role in the UK and rest of Europe, provide feedback on what is expected of an independent biometrics peak body, find out more about the services the Institute is planning to offer and network with peers in an informal environment provided by the independent Biometrics Institute.

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.
