Dear Dr Renhorn,
As far I understand, this task will have 3 aspects to handle which are:
- legal ans social apects related to privacy connected to cybersurveillance
issues (EU and national directives and laws)
- national laws for the medical specificities
- all the upcoming technologicals issues related to nano, RFID, etc...
it is all in a loop, but each aspects has to be considered separately in
order to tackle the right angle enabling the research with the respect of
the person and the person's dignity as human being, the law and the national
specific bodies like national data protection commission.
This is something we can do, but I would like to know the countries with
which you plan to work as there are some countries in which we do not have
previous experience. Icould not see from the abstract who the partners are
and for which countries you would like to have this WP 11 to work.
We have started to work on those social and legal aspect for the LIAISON
project (FP6 - IP 511766. In the coming month we will open a blog with our
major findings related to the workplace.
