PACT (Public perception of security and privacy: Assessing knowledge, Collecting evidence, Translating research into action) is a 36 month collaborative project, partly funded by the European Commission within the scope of the FP7 Security Programme. The multinational consortium constituting the PACT project team shares the common vision depicted by the famous quote attributed to Benjamin Franklin.
Security, Privacy and Fundamental Rights
PACT project believes that security, privacy and fundamental rights are not necessarily in tension, but that they may all be pursued together. We believe that the web of rich and nuanced relations between security and privacy go well beyond any simplistic formula and can be correctly understood only by considering them within the context of complex of societal and cultural interactions.
