The European Journal of Privacy Law & Technologies (EJPLT) is a European Law Scientific Journal, specifically focused on Privacy, with particular regard to the ever-important relation between, law and innovation, humanities and technologies.
Its aim is to gather precious contributions on Privacy issues and New Technologies, thus becoming an enabler for the dissemination of scientific information and research activities throughout the European Union on such fundamental topics.
The Journal is the result of the partnership between institutions from three different European countries, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Spain. More precisely the Consortium is the result of the European project ‘Training Activities to Implement the Data Protection Reform’ (TAtoDPR), a project co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union (2014-2020) under Grant Agreement n. 769191.
Four Universities and an enterprise are involved in this European project, providing different perspectives and expertise:
- Università degli Studi Suor Orsola Benincasa of Naples (UNISOB), Coordinator of the project TAtoDPR, with its outstanding tradition in the field of Law and New Technologies, and especially the Interdepartmental Research Centre ‘Scienza Nuova’ and its ‘UTOPIA Lab’ and the Research Centre of European Private Law (ReCEPL) both established at UNISOB, specifically dedicated to creating a bridge between social sciences and the realm of advanced scientific and technological development. UNISOB Legal team has already obtained several recognitions for its research activity in the field of data protection.
