From contact tracing apps to economic forecasting, 2020 has seen a range of innovative new uses for data – and also re-ignited long-standing debates on data sharing, data protection, privacy and public interest. Join PRIViLEDGE, a Horizon-2020 funded project releasing data privacy and anonymity tools, for an investigation into how blockchain and distributed ledger technologies (DLT) can offer solutions for data security and privacy issues.
This interdisciplinary virtual workshop brings together researchers, innovators and policy makers. We kick off with a keynote panel that explores how political and policy priorities around data and privacy have evolved since the beginning of 2020. This will be followed by a briefing from four Horizon 2020 projects that present insights and new techniques for data security and privacy. Finally, the European Commission will reflect on how the European Union’s strategies for data and blockchain will support further innovation in coming years.
