The use of technology in identity verification (1 June 2017 in Oslo)

The Norwegian national conference 'The Use of Technology in Identity Verification' will take place in Oslo on 1 June, 2017.


The objective of the conference, hosted by the Norwegian EMN contact point, is to discuss the possibilities and challenges faced by immigration authorities when verifying the identity of asylum seekers and other immigrants.

Establishing and verifying a person's identity are core issues when reviewing and processing applications for immigration, asylum and residence. As a result, authorities constantly focus efforts on developing robust, effective methods and systems designed to establish and verify identity.

This conference will especially focus on the role technology can play in identity verification.
