The first PRACTIS newsletter: Privacy – Appraising Challenges to Technologies and Ethics has been released.
The PRACTIS foresight study project has two main goals:
1. To identify and assess evolving impacts on privacy that might result from emerging technologies and new scientific knowledge, and to propose means to cope with potential future risks to privacy in both the legal and social spheres, while maximising the benefits of these new technologies.
2. To formulate a framework for thinking about the ethical and legal issues related to privacy in the future when the emerging technologies will prevail. PRACTIS will explore novel policy options to preserve citizens’ privacy in the context of new technologies.
