OCH - Optimizing Legal and Ethical Use of Technologies for Cybersecurity & Health

Project Details


The IOF GEAR programme “Optimizing Legal and Ethical Use of Technologies for Cybersecurity & Health” (OCH) aims at contributing substantially to the European, and global, search to optimize the legal and ethical use of technologies in the domains and cybersecurity and health in order for them to better serve their societal purposes. VUB’s research group on Law, Science, Technology and Society (LSTS), specifically its two labs focusing on cybersecurity and health, the Cyber and Data Security Lab (CDSL) and the Health and Ageing Law Lab (HALL) respectively, are uniquely positioned to serve these objectives through, among others, applied research within EU- and Member State-funded projects, collaborations with industry-representative associations, governmental actors (including at EU level), as well as, academic partners active within the above fields, participation in training activities and collaborations, as well as, development of their own legal and ethical assessment tools and methodologies to optimize uptake and deployment of cybersecurity and health technologies
