The present deliverable outlines the TARES Impact Assessment method that the project intends to follow to conduct. This assessment is broader than just a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) pursuant to Article 35 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It will not only include the objectives of the latter, but also refer to the ethical and societal concerns of the project (ethical impact assessment - ‘EIA’) and privacy aspects not falling under the data protection impact assessment (privacy impact assessment – ‘PIA’).
The TARES impact assessment implies a proactive approach contributing to informed decision-making by considering potential consequences of the project, direct and indirect, to the rights and freedoms of natural persons, before its occurrence. An impact assessment evaluates the origin, nature and severity of impacts that the processing operations, real or hypothetical, of a specific project entail.
The present impact assessment method intends to describe the steps to take in order to generate useful information to consortium partners and assist them in taking informed decisions about the development and deployment of the HR-Recycler technology. There is no one-size-fits all model for conducting impact assessments.
