Rising pan-European and International Awareness of Biometrics and Security Ethics (RISE)
Start date: 01 Mar 2009, End date: 29 Feb 2012 PROJECT  FINISHED 

RISE is a CSA (coordinating), which aims to promote pan-European and International Awareness on Ethical Aspects of Biometrics and Security Technologies. In particular the project aims to deepen, enlarge, and ensure continuity to transnational (European) and international dialogue already instigated by the international conferences on ethics and biometrics organised by the EC DG Research and the US DHS Privacy Office respectively in Brussels and Washington DC in 2005 and 2006. RISE’s point is the new political landscape created by the Treaty of Lisbon of the European Union. The EU is now on the verge of a multifaceted reform of its decision-making rules for security, which may have deep ethical and political implications. RISE will address this issue.
