European Journal of Privacy Law & Technologies (EJPLT)
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 EJPLT is the result of the partnership between institutions from three different European countries, Italy, the United Kingdom, and Spain. More precisely, this Consortium arises from 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 Commission (2014-2020) under Grant Agreement n. 769191 of 2017.
Four Universities and an enterprise were involved in this European project, providing different perspectives and expertise: Università degli Studi Suor Orsola Benincasa of Naples (UNISOB), Coordinator of the project TAtoDPR, Universidad de Sevilla (USE) Loughborough University (LBORO). University of Derby (DER), RE:Lab l.l.c. (REL).
From 2020, the Journal has been co-funded by European Commission within the European Project Jean Monnet Chair ‘European Protection Law of Individuals in relation to New Technologies’ (PROTECH) (611876-EPP-1-2019-1-IT-EPPJMO-CHAIR), Erasmus+ Programme, that has ensured a Journal renewed research focus on the European Protection Law of the individuals in the digital age.
Furthermore, the papers presented during the PROTECH workshops, which will be held in the three academic years 2019/2020, 2020/20201 and 2021/2020, will be published on the EJPLT.
In 2022 EJPL has been further implemented thanks to winning the co-funding for the Jean Monnet Chair project ‘European Green Rights: reshaping fundamental rights for next generations’ (EUGREENEXT) (ERASMUS-JMO-2021-HEI-TCH-RSCH), which contributed to the expansion of the research topics by also including a specific focus on Green Technologies. EUGREENEXT aims to introduce an innovative approach in the configuration of fundamental rights in European Law (EU Green Rights) with respect to health, natural environment, and welfare of living beings, to address present and next generations’ needs (sustainability).
