consultation

p2_farewell_slide_v4-colorWith a set of more than 50 recommendations for the improvement of practical cooperation between data protection authorities, a multi-national research consortium – led by Prof. Dr. Paul De Hert of Vrije Universiteit Brussel – concluded a four-year research initiative in the framework of two projects named “PHAEDRA”. These studies were commissioned and financially supported by the European Union.

Personal data no longer stay within one country. They are constantly being exchanged between jurisdictions and this elevates risks for both individuals as well as public and private organisations. When something goes wrong – for example a data breach – the consequences are not only often serious, but also these consequences equally often occur in more than one country. Given the importance of information for contemporary economy and national security, an adequate response to tackle this challenge is therefore critically needed. It is a global standard in data protection law that dedicated supervisory authorities have been set up not only to sanction violations of this branch of law, but also to work to prevent these violations from happening. These authorities normally have been busy with matters concerning their own countries. As these days personal data transcend boundaries, these authorities now need to work together efficiently to achieve this double end” – said Prof. De Hert.

The MovingLife project is a Coordination and Support Action (FP7) that will deliver roadmaps for technological research, implementation practice and policy support with the aim of accelerating the establishment, acceptance and wide use of mobile eHealth solutions.

MovingLife has developed preliminary roadmaps for mHealth that address a broad group of fundamental issues such as: technology options for mHealth applications and services; options for new and improved medical guidelines; user empowerment, acceptance, ethics and privacy; socio-economic environments and policy and regulatory frameworks.

The project is committed to intensive stakeholder engagement and we therefore invite all relevant actors and stakeholders in mHealth to contribute to the definition of a realistic, relevant and clear roadmap for the future use of deployment of mHealth. Based on your expertise in the specific fields, we are now seeking your advice and comments to the requirements and challenges presented in the proposed roadmaps.

We call on all stakeholders to contribute to developing a comprehensive, well-defined and realistic roadmap of mHealth solutions by completing the online survey. If you would like to participate in the consultation, please click here.
