Cluster 3: Border Management 2021 (HORIZON-CL3-2021-BM-01), 5 calls open
Regarding security in the movements of goods across external borders, research will address requirements identified by the European Commission and EU customs authorities and should contribute to capabilities for detecting illegal activities both at external border crossing points and through the supply chain. EU customs authorities face increasing volumes of commerce, trade and traffic of goods, as well as having a range of tasks to fulfil besides security. International smuggling has the potential to become more sophisticated and/or increase in the coming years and decades, and could be facilitated by cybercrime. Criminal networks may exploit potential weaknesses of global supply chains, transport and logistics to pursue illicit trade and other crimes. At the same time, threats and hazards that may need to be detected in the flow of goods are very diverse and often need different sensors and technologies to be detected (from chemical, biological, nuclear, radiological and explosive material to drugs, firearms, money, waste, trafficked wildlife, cultural goods, etc.). Hence, customs need innovation to enable detection and to ensure security without at the same time disrupting or unnecessarily hampering trade flows. Capabilities built through research will contribute to the implementation of the new EU Customs Union action plan to reinforce customs risk management and effective controls. Capabilities include those on threat detection in postal flows; automated controls and detection that reduce the need to open or stop containers, packages, baggage or cargo; decision support; portability of control solutions; and technologies to track cross-border illicit trade.

Under this destination the EU has published five calls for proposals that are open for admission:

1. Enhanced security and management of borders, maritime environment, activities and transport, by increased surveillance capability, including high altitude, long endurance aerial support (HORIZON-CL3-2021-BM-01-01)
2. Increased safety, security, performance of the European Border and Coast Guard and of European customs authorities (HORIZON-CL3-2021-BM-01-02)
3. Improved border checks for travel facilitation across external borders and improved experiences for both passengers and border authorities' staff (HORIZON-CL3-2021-BM-01-03)
4. Advanced detection of threats and illicit goods in postal and express courier flows (HORIZON-CL3-2021-BM-01-04)
5. Improved detection of concealed objects on, and within the body of, persons (HORIZON-CL3-2021-BM-01-05)
