Ensuring Privacy and Consent: Delivering Innovative Solutions
This is a joint research programme, funded by an investment of over £5.5m from the Technology Strategy Board's Network Security Innovation Platform, the Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), will enable UK industry, universities, local authorities and other research and technology organisations to work in collaboration to address key research challenges in ensuring privacy and consent in next generation systems. The programme is being undertaken in association with the Home Office and Identity and Passport Service.
The three projects are:
- Encore, which will focus on the issue of providing more rigorous means for individuals to grant and revoke their consent for the use, storage and sharing of personal data, bringing together technological, procedural and regulatory developments.
- VOME, a research project that will reveal and utilise end users' ideas and concepts regarding privacy and consent, facilitating a clearer requirement of the hardware and software required to meet end users' expectations.
- Privacy Value Networks (pvnets), will generate a detailed understanding of individuals' and organisations' conceptions of privacy and identity across a range of contexts and timeframes - using a range of techniques including in-depth privacy value and devalue chains analysis to model the impact of the personal information.
