PANELFIT (Participatory Approaches to a New Ethical and Legal Framework for ICTs) is an H2020-funded project that facilitates adaptation to the new EU regulations on data protection, data commercialization, security and cybersecurity issues. Its outcomes will include an open-access guidelines document, a critical analysis of the information and communication technology (ICT) data protection regulatory framework, and a report on the governance of ICT data protection ethical and legal issues.
During 2021, ECSA focused on delivering the citizens’ information pack, which is one of the project’s major publicly available deliverables. Along with project partners ICM-CSIC and OBCT, we drafted much of the contents for this pack, including a series of factsheets on legal and ethical issues around ICTs. We also created the document ‘ICTs, data and vulnerable people: a guide for citizens’ which drew on much of the research we conducted during the project. The overarching aim of this output is to provide a reliable source of information to different experts as well as the general public regarding key aspects of the GDPR and where to find out more. To further enable this the CIP is currently being translated into French, Spanish, German and Italian all of which will be available on the project’s website.
