ICT and privacy in Europe

This project aimed at analysing and synthesising reports from different European TA units to find overlapping fields as well as blind spots.


It gave an overview on technological and political threats and solutions to the issue of privacy. We included public opinion to look for solutions for threats that are regarded as real threats. In the end we aimed at building a scenario for the European future 20 years from now, in which governance, law, organisation and technology ensure ICT-privacy for the European citizen. Deriving from the scenario we adressed policy options and recommendations for the European as well as national decision makers.
