Responsible and ethical use of biometrics - the great debate

Biometric data offers both opportunities and challenges with respect to fundamental rights.

Drawing on its extensive work in this area, FRA will contribute to a panel debate in Brussels on 6 June on the responsible use of biometrics.

It forms part of the Biometrics Institute/Microsoft joint event entitled ‘The Great Debate: Responsible and Ethical use of Biometrics’.

FRA will exchange with representatives of the industry, the data protection supervisor and the United Nations.
