Many new technologies have a Janus face. They often promise great benefits for citizens and society as a whole. But sometimes they also have a dark side because they can be used in harmful ways not foreseen by their creators. Privacy is one of the rights that is under constant pressure through the scientific and technological progress.

The aim of the PRESCIENT Project is to identify and assess privacy issues posed by emerging sciences and technologies and to contribute to the development of new instruments for the governance of science and technology.

Looking at different fields of science and technology, each with their own tradition and culture to deal with privacy issues, this study will analyse different prevention means and policy measures and amalgamate a common framework for privacy and ethical assessment.
