TEACHING ACTIVITIES

Overview

The creation of a Chair in “European Protection Law for Individuals in relation to New Technologies” (PROTECH) at University of Naples Suor Orsola Benincasa aims to stimulate teaching, research and debating activities in a crucial area of European integration studies in order to promote a balance between technological innovation and development, from one part, and, from the other, the protection of some specific categories of “vulnerable persons”, where concept of ness is not related to disability but to the relationship of an individual with the technological habitat or with the technological tool that in itself could represent a major exposure to risk. This is meant to increase the trust of people in digital environments and, most of all, in the European Digital Single Market as a secure place. The three-year teaching course will provide a knowledge base on European Union Law in a multi-disciplinary approach, with a particular focus on the field of legal integration in the protection of the subjects in “vulnerable” position in the technological context.
