The FÖPS Berlin has been managing the security-related research activities of the HWR Berlin since 2013. The analysis and evaluation of new information technology instruments is one of the main foci of the institute. Prof. Dr. Hartmut Aden, deputy director of FÖPS Berlin, is among others distinguished by legal, political and administrative research on data protection and police information exchange. Internationally, comparative perspectives and the increasing networking in the EU multilevel system and beyond play a central role in his research. Prof. Aden also has relevant practical experience as an official data protection officer at the HWR. As an expert, he regularly comments on relevant legislative proposals in the German Bundestag and the state parliaments. With its specialized expertise, FÖPS Berlin will lead AP2 and, in close cooperation with the other work packages, will define the legal requirements for the identification technology to be developed as well as the ethical and political-administrative framework for its testing and introduction across all technical developments of the overall project.
