Research interests

Paolo Balboni is Professor of Privacy, Cybersecurity, and IT Contract Law at the European Centre on Privacy and Cybersecurity (ECPC) within the Maastricht University Faculty of Law. He graduated with a degree in Law from the University of Bologna (Italy) in 2001 and completed his Ph.D. in Comparative Technology Law at Tilburg University (The Netherlands) in 2008.

His main research focus is Data Protection as a Corporate Social Responsibility (DPCSR), which can be used to help companies to responsibly further their economic targets and at the same time positively contribute to the development of a fair data-centric society. Looking more precisely at how businesses can consider fair practices, privacy, data protection and data security as assets, DPCSR furthers the concept of fairness by design where fairness is built into the design of data processing activities (services, applications, algorithms, and products that enable information/data processing).
