Contact-tracing applications use smartphones to alert users if they've been in contact with someone who's had the disease. This Bluetooth-enabled digital tool that can trace cases at scale has the potential to play a key role in all phases of crisis management, especially when time will be ripe to gradually lift social distancing measures. As several Member States have been deploying tracing apps throughout the last few weeks, questions arise about the efficiency, accuracy and privacy-friendly character of this technology.

Some of the biggest issues are making sure there is a critical mass of people signing up, the use of decentralized or centralized contact tracing apps, the mandatory or voluntary character and the need to introduce solid ethical and legal safeguards. The EU Member States, together with the European Commission have developed a Common EU Toolbox to support a common European approach for tracing apps, a Guidance on data protection for mobile apps to set out the features and requirements needed to ensure compliance with EU privacy and personal data protection legislation and a set of technical specifications to ensure a safe exchange of information between national contact tracing apps based on a decentralized architecture.

The STOA Panel has invited high-level experts to discuss the technology behind contact tracing applications, its accuracy, security and effectiveness in breaking the chains of transmission of an infectious disease; the lessons learned so far by their gradual deployment in Europe and the best practices developed to effectively contact trace while maintaining privacy in a centralized or decentralized way; to shed light on the possible impacts of this technology on the protection of personal data and citizens' trust and explore the main ethical concerns relating to the use of this app by individuals; and to examine the adequacy of the current EU legal framework to safeguard the responsible use of these applications.

Klausymai

Remiantis Darbo tvarkos taisyklių 193 straipsniu, jei būtina, komitetui leidžiama rengti klausymą konkrečia darbo tema, kuriame kviečiami dalyvauti ekspertai. Du ar keli komitetai gali rengti bendrus klausymus. Dauguma komitetų rengia nuolatinius klausymus, kadangi juose galima sužinoti ekspertų nuomonę ir aptarti pagrindinius klausimus. Šiame puslapyje rasite visą turimą informaciją, susijusią su komitetų klausymais, įskaitant programas, skelbimus ir kalbas.

Seminarai

Seminarus organizuoja teminiai skyriai, o jų išlaidos tvarkomos vadovaujantis Finansiniu reglamentu. Seminarai nebūtinai yra vieši. Jie gali būti rengiami per komiteto posėdį.

Seminaruose EP nariai gali pateikti klausimus ir keistis nuomonėmis su ekspertais Parlamento veiklos ar kitais svarbiais einamaisiais klausimais.
