The development of smart cities has several privacy implications and it challenges the application and enforcement of data protection law. The SPECTRE project looks at these challenges through the lens of the disciplines of law, communication sciences and economics. The aim is to explore and propose legitimate, participatory and economically-sound solutions for enhancing data protection. SPECTRE will argue for greater responsibilisation in the smart city environment, by increasing participation of different stakeholders through the development of a collaborative, cost-efficient Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) methodology. Furthermore, the potential of using public procurement rules to incorporate this new method for a DPIA to effectively deal with the privacy impacts of smart cities will be explored.
