Core competencies

Eticas Research & Consulting is a Spain-based SME working on the social, ethical and legal impact of security policy,
innovation and technology development, and the interaction between changing societal values, engineering
possibilities and fundamental rights.

Our contribution focuses on the analysis of the contextual factors that can and should guide technological
development and implementation, with a particular emphasis on understanding broader issues linked to trust and
acceptability, compliance with the legal context, social externalities and ethical issues at large.

Eticas’ main area of expertise and contribution to consortia is the understanding and analysis of the national and
regional legal framework applicable to surveillance and security technology, the identification of weaknesses or
breach-of-rights instances in the development and implementation of security policy and the assessment and
promotion of the inclusion of privacy, social and ethical concerns in the design of security technology and policy
practice.

The partners at Eticas come from both research institutions and the private industry and constitute a multidisciplinary
team with vast experience in public security. They have worked as consultants for governments and public and
private bodies, and have been involved in the development of security policy, police training, analyses of the legal,
social and ethical impacts of new technology, privacy impact assessments (PIA), data protection audits,
implementations of large-scale hardware and software engineering projects, research and development of new
technologies, development of strategies for innovation, and the creation of networks of co-operation between
industry, research centres and end-users. They all share a willingness to contribute to a society in which people are at
the centre of innovation and technological development.
