The beginning of October marks the start of not one but two EU-supported projects coordinated by Law and Internet Foundation. Both projects are dedicated to fundamental rights but concentrate on different aspects and are aimed at different target groups.
The project INFORM’s ambition is to provide cutting edge curriculum on the provisions introduced by the General Data Protection Regulation and Directive (EU) 2016/680, regulating the right to personal data protection. The project will reach out to judiciary’s representatives, legal practitioners and court staff, as to ensure the correct interpretation and application of the new legislation. This October representatives of all project partners will gather in Sofia to officially kick-off INFORM implementation.
The project encompasses 10 EU Member States and is supported by the Justice Programme of the European Commission under Grant Agreement № 763866.
The realisation of the project E-PROTECT also begins in October 2017. The focus of this project lies on Victims’ rights protection, more particular on the safeguard of child victim of crime rights. To this end, the project activities will be aimed at the variety of professionals who work with children and often are their first point of contact in an event of a crime. On the 16 of October, Law and Internet Foundation as the project coordinator will welcome the rest of the E-PROTECT partners in Sofia for the first work meeting.The project implementation will unfold in 5 EU Member States and is supported by the Justice Programme of the European Commission under Grant Agreement № 760270.
