UPM Raflatac will supply RFID inlays for access control in support of the 25th European Youth Olympic Festival in Tampere, Finland this month.
All authorized individuals involved in the upcoming event will be issued UPM Raflatac RFID tag identification passes. The identification cards will facilitate access to e.g. accommodation, dining and competition venues. Moreover, the RFID tag passes will allow access to free usage of the public transportation system in Tampere.
