License agreement signed between Idiap & EC’s Joint Research Center to experiment BEAT platform.

The BEAT platform is an European computing e-infrastructure for Open Science proposing a solution for open access, scientific information sharing and re-use including data and source code while protecting privacy and confidentiality. It allows easy online access to experimentation and testing in computational science. The platform also provides an attestation mechanism for your reports (scientific papers, technical documents or certifications).

The platform can be used for biometric testing and performance characterization of biometric systems.

Sébastien Marcel the coordinator of the BEAT project at Idiap says « We are excited by this first licence agreement and to have such an institution like JRC to test and possibly deploy our BEAT platform on their data ».
