Innovation and Societal Acceptance

Since the beginning of the EU’s 7th Research Framework Program, security has been the subject of a specially created research program. This has made it clear that security research and the implementation of the solutions developed have far-reaching consequences for society. The result is that respect for privacy and other fundamental rights have become a mandatory requirement, already at the research level.
