The e-Sides-project, a coordination and support action in the field of privacy-preserving big data technologies is starting officially on 19 January 2017 with a kick-off-meeting in Luxembourg. The kick-off meeting is co-located with the Information and Networking Days on Horizon 2020 Big Data PPP’s which is taking place on 17 and 18 January 2017. e-Sides will complement the research on privacy-preserving big data technologies, by analysing, mapping and clearly identifying the main societal and ethical challenges emerging from the adoption of big data technologies, conforming to the principles of responsible research and innovation; setting up and organizing a sustainable dialogue between industry, research and social actors, as well as networking with the main Research and Innovation Actions and Large Scale Pilots and other framework programme projects interested in these issues.
We just received news that our project proposal e-Sides „Ethical and Societal Implications of Data Sciences“ was positively evaluated. We hope that the project can start at the beginning of 2017.
