The growing pervasiveness of information and communication technologies and the digitalisation of services offer new opportunities for citizens, but also new challenges for an informed use of the technology by consumers and economic players.
The information society modifies the concept of citizenship and the definition of rights, and it represents a unique opportunity for public administrations to adopt innovative tools in order to reduce the gap between government and citizens.
At the same time, it is highly desirable to strengthen the trust in the digital networks guaranteeing a high level of digital security and the respect of fundamental rights in the cyber space, with a particular attention to privacy.
Fondazione Ugo Bordoni promotes a balanced development of the ICT sector, providing technical-scientific support in terms of quality of service and digital security to operators, PAs and Independent Authorities for consumer protection.
FUB is also committed in promoting citizens empowerment and awareness about their rights in the fields of electronic communications, fruition of audio-visual, and privacy.
