Name Rising pan-European and International awareness of biometrics and Security ethics
Acronym RISE
Start Date2009-03-01
Duration36 months
DescriptionThe RISE project aims to raise pan-European and International Awareness of Biometrics and Security Ethics. The project is based on three main concepts:
1.Dialogue must be global
2.Policy must be ethically informed
3.Conversation must be ongoing

O1: preparing and convening a third international conference in China
O2: preparing and convening a European multi-stakeholder meeting;
O3: preparing and convening a fourth international conference and launching a dialogue initiative

RISE’s strategy is based on the involvement of the wider community of stakeholders and a careful design of its meetings and workshops. A crucial lesson that we have learned from previous conferences is the importance of a multi-disciplinary, multi-sectors, multi-level, cross-borders participation. A pluralist environment is the most suited to stimulate thinking out of the box and search for innovative, win-win, solutions. It avoids “specialists” entering into a vicious circle, and allows participants to reframe issues.
