Main Results of the mission: (Please attach as many separate sheets as necessary)
The Frontex workshop was attended by about 30 delegates from MS police, borderguards, interior
ministeries, largely users of the FOSS system provided by JRC G2 to Frontex.
Both the FOSS and FMM parallel sessions were well attended. During the FMM session there was
considerable interest in EMM and OSInt, and in the iPad app version of EMM: this was felt to have
advantages to workers in the field at border posts or on board vessels who could use it to maintain
awareness when a pc based version could not be used.
In his presentation to delegates from the MS,
of Frontex stated that
was very happy
with the Frontex Media Monitor and that there is “commercially nothing better available”.
