On 12 December 2014, the final conference under the PHAEDRA project will take place in Cracow (Poland). The theme is ‘Enforcing privacy: lessons from current implementations and perspectives for future’. The conference will be addressed to national data protection authorities, selected policy-makers, scientific world, NGOs and media. The goal of the conference is to present the final results of the project and to discuss the outcomes in the wider perspective of cooperation and coordination activities between Data Protection Authorities (DPAs), Privacy Commissioners, and Privacy Enforcement Authorities.
The project ARCADES, ‘Introducing data protection and privacy issues at schools in the European Union (EU)’, has been launched. It aims to bring into EU schools personal data protection and privacy content in order to shape informed and responsible attitudes among school children and teens. This 18-month project, co-funded by the EU, brings together the Bureau of the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection (Poland), the Information Commissioner of the Republic of Slovenia, the National Authority for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Hungary) and VUB’s LSTS (Belgium).
