Public engagement:

Demonstration, Schools, Tutors, Teachers, Organisor (with local industry EdenFiftyOne as Lead), Nationwide (UK), Publishing people (EFO), Our Innovate-funded initiative with EdenFiftyOne Ltd, is showcasing its capabilities to multiple schools across the UK. Teacher feedback has specifically recognized the innovative features that enhance accessibility and interactivity, allowing users to engage with tutors' knowledge, experience, sector-specialism, and teaching style from any location, at any time, and without constraints. Presently, we are collaboratively undertaking an impact case study involving a broader spectrum of schools in the UK, and we are actively seeking external funding to facilitate further development and commercialization.. 2024

Festival event, General Public, Co-Organisor, Manchester, UK, EU-Borders & Manchester Science Festival, The research work conducted as part of iBorderCtrl really entered public consciousness in October 2018 after the EC published a story about iBorderCtrl to coincide with a showcase of the traveller’s pre-registration system at the Manchester Science Festival (MSF). A conservative estimate of global reach is 236,900,000 across all media. Since January 2019 there has been sustained activity with 190 follow-on articles (32 in English). I co-organised a Case Study in Public Perception at MSF which is an established UK science festival in its 12 year which attracts around 30,000 visitors. One of the activities involved adult members of the public volunteering to take part in a usability test of the iBorderCtrl Pre-Traveller Registration System. Over 85% of participants responded ‘iBorder|Ctrl’ as ‘safe’ for UK and EU border security. The Border Manager User Application (BMUA), was considered as one of the most interesting tools presented to Border Managers, opening new dimensions in the future in comparison to the currently used traditional means (impact details: https://www.iborderctrl.eu/Project-Outcomes/). 2018
