About Amber: enhAnced Mobile BiomEtRics

In recent years the ubiquity of mobile computing platforms such as smartphones and tablet devices has rapidly increased. These devices provide a range of interaction in an untethered environment unimaginable a decade previously[1]. With this ability to interact with services and individuals, comes the need to accurately authenticate the identity of the person requesting the transaction, many of which may carry financial or legally-binding instruction[2]. Biometric solutions (using modalities such as finger, face, iris, voice and signature) have also seen increased prominence over the past decade with large-scale implementations in areas such as passport, visa and national identity card systems.








Early Stage Researchers

AMBER has ten Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researchers

AMBER has ten Marie Skłodowska-Curie Early Stage Researchers (ESR) projects across five EU universities.  Completing those ten projects are early stage researchers who have come from all over Europe and outside of the EU. Meet our ESRs and read about their individual projects here. As well as academic partners, the Network has the direct support of seven Industrial Partners. Each ESR will be taking part in both an academic partner placement, and an industrial placement. Check out the news and events section to track their movements.

The aim of the Network is to collate Europe-wide complementary academic and industrial expertise, train and equip the next generation of researchers to define, investigate and implement solutions, and develop solutions and theory to ensure secure, ubiquitous and efficient authentication whilst protecting privacy of citizens.

The Network runs between 1st January 2017 and 31st December 2020.
